Dr Anna Leung
Role at ANSTO
Organic synthesis, NMR spectroscopy, stereoselective synthesis.
Anna completed her PhD in synthetic organic chemistry in 2013. She accomplished the first synthesis of two novel marine natural products and used NMR spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography to determine that their proposed structures were incorrect.
- PhD (Monash University), 2013
- BA/BSc (Hons) (Monash University), 2009
