Associate Professor Paul Stanwix is Assistant Director for Research at the  UWA Centre for Energy and an expert in extremely precise measurement techniques.

With applications in fundamental and applied science, his research contributions range from testing Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity with world-record precision, to developing techniques for nanoscale magnetic sensing using diamonds and low-cost methods for water monitoring using magnetic resonance. His current research is focused on measuring gas properties and applying precision spectroscopy to the study natural gas hydrate dynamics.

In 2008, Paul received the inaugural Australian National Measurement Institute Prize for contributions to measurement science and was recently awarded an Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Early Career Research Fellowship. He is a finalist for the Woodside Early Career Scientist of the Year Award - a prestigious recognition under the WA Premier's Science Awards.
