Personal profile


PhD USYD Australia 2009 - 2014, under the supervision of Prof Matthew H. Todd. Research associate 2013 - 2016 at Mol Sci Macquarie University, working with Dr Ian Jamie. ARC ITTC Research fellow 2017 - current, working with Distinguished Prof Phillip W. Taylor.

Research interests

Dr Soo Jean Park is an analytical/synthetic chemist with research interests in chemical ecology aspects of control strategies for economically significant invertebrates. Pest insects cause serious threats to horticultural industries by direct damages on produces and restricting market access worldwide. There is a need for more environmentally sustainable insect pest management strategies. Dr Park has focused on understanding chemical ecology of pests, improving existing methods and developing new tools.

Research topics:

  • Develop natural products based attractants, repellents, and toxicants for pest insects;
  • Microencapsulations and carbon-based materials for controlled release;
  • Effects of semiochemicals on insect physiology by metabolomics and volatolomics


Dr. Park is looking for students in Analytical chemistry/Chemical Ecology/Material sciences (Projects: Identification and synthesis of functional compounds from macadamia pest insects and host/trap plants; Chitin from black soldier flies as microencapsulation wall material)
