Dr. Eleanor Campbell

Beamline Scientist - ANSTO

Eleanor is a crystallographer and instrument scientist helping researchers from all over the country use ultra-bright light to answer their scientific questions. She currently works at the Australian Synchrotron and helps scientists use a technique called X-ray crystallography: shooting powerful X-rays at crystals to work out the structures of individual molecules. Eleanor’s background is in chemistry and biochemistry, and her research looks at how we can engineer enzymes to do useful chemical reactions, including cleaning up toxic chemicals from the environment.
