I love being in the laboratory, the classroom and the outdoors. My PhD is focused on understanding novel types of molecules and their use as catalysts to speed up chemical reactions and reduce waste. Furthering our fundamental knowledge of these compounds is the key to harnessing them in the pharmaceutical and materials industries.
I also love teaching, both at university and in outreach programs where I hope to inspire people of all ages with my passion for science. Outside of the university I spend my time mountain biking, climbing, bush-walking and diving whenever I can.
