Annie completed her undergraduate degree and PhD at the Australian National University. She received an Endeavour Research Fellowship to work at the University of Bath (2015), followed by postdoctoral appointments at the University of Oxford (2015-2017) and the University of Cambridge (2017-2019). She returned to the ANU in 2019 as a Rita Cornforth Fellow to establish her independent research on the design of transition metal catalysts.


Research interests

Annie’s research focuses on the design and understanding of homogeneous transition metal catalysts. This includes developing new catalysts for chemical hydrogen storage, exploring liquid organic hydrogen carriers (LOHCs) and their hydrogenation and dehydrogenation reactions. https://chemistry.anu.edu.au/research/groups/catalyst-design
