Anna is a Junior Research Fellow in the Department of Chemistry and the Insitute of Chemical Biology. Her JRF is sponsored by Professor Ed Tate at Imperial and Tony Holder at the Francis Crick Institute.

After graduating with an MChem degree from Durham University in 2008, Anna began a PhD in Chemistry with Professor David Smith at the University of York on self-assembling dendrons with applications in gene delivery which included a research visit at the University of Illinois. From 2012, she worked as a post-doctoral research associate with Professor Andy Wilson at the University of Leeds for 2 years on the development of novel inhibitors of protein-protein interactions. She then carried out a post-doc at Imperial College with Ed Tate for one year until the start of her JRF position in October 2015.
