I completed an undergraduate degree in forensic and analytical chemistry, followed by an Honours degree in archaeological chemistry, both at the Flinders University of South Australia. Once finished, I moved overseas and completed a Master of Science degree at the University of Cambridge, UK, in geochemistry looking at Antarctic ice cores. After some time off to travel, I joined the Royal Society of Chemistry in 2007 and after a number of different positions I am now the deputy editor for JAAS, Metallomics, Food & Function and Toxicology Research. In addition to my role of working with the editorial boards and on journal strategies I enjoy contributing to Chemistry World when I can. Outside of work I enjoy travelling, hiking, netball and the cinema.
