Dr Renata Lippi

Beamline Scientist – Advanced Diffraction & Scattering

Role at ANSTO

Dr Renata Lippi is a beamline scientist for the new Advanced Diffraction and Scattering beamlines (ADS-1 & ADS-2), which are currently being built as part of the BRIGHT project at the Australian Synchrotron. She currently works on a range of activities related to beamline design and experimental techniques development and will later assist with commissioning the beamlines and supporting user experiments.

Dr Lippi’s has expertise in catalytic materials and in situ/in operando experiments. Prior to joining ANSTO, she was a postdoctoral fellow and project leader at CSIRO Energy and worked on a number of research projects on CO2 hydrogenation, ammonia synthesis and H2 utilisation. Renata has years of experience running the high-throughput catalysis facility and led the construction of a robotic furnace laboratory both located at CSIRO Clayton.
