Dr Robin Purchase

BSc (ANU), PhD (ANU)
Postdoctoral Fellow, Research School of Chemistry
College of Science

Robin received her PhD from the Australian National University.  She subsequently worked at the ETH in Zürich, Switzerland and Leiden University, The Netherlands before returning to the ANU.  In this time, she obtained a wide experience in low-temperature high-resolution optical spectroscopy applied, in particular, to porphyrins and (photosynthetic) proteins, and in artificial photosynthesis. 

Research interests

Robin's current research interests are the study of excited state dynamics in natural photosynthesis with optical spectroscopy with a view to the application of this knowledge in artificial photosynthesis.
