Anna Regoutz is an Imperial College Research Fellow in the Department of Materials. Her focus lies on advanced spectroscopy methods for bulk materials and buried interfaces in electronic materials. She concentrates on using and developing both laboratory- and synchrotron-based spectroscopic methods to study in particular the electronic structure in oxide heterostructures. Furthermore, her interests include novel growth methods for thin films and nanostructured layers of metal oxides and their electronic and optical applications.

Anna received her BSc (2009) and Dipl. Ing. (2010) from the Graz University of Technology, Austria. During the Masters programme (Dipl. Ing.) she concentrated on “Surface and Interface Technologies”. Whilst studying at Graz she worked at Infineon Technologies Austria,Villach, Austria, where she conducted research for her Masters thesis titled “Evaluation of Decapsulation Methods for Semiconductor Devices”.

She conducted her D.Phil. research in Inorganic Chemistry between 2010 and 2014 under the supervision of Prof. Russell Egdell at the University of Oxford, UK, and Trinity College, Oxford, UK. The research focused on structural and electronic properties of metal oxides. During this time she was awarded a graduate scholarship by Trinity College, and served as the President of the Middle Common Room at Trinity College from 2011-2013. During the academic year 2012/13 she held a non-stipendiary lectureship in Inorganic Chemistry at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford, UK.

After her DPhil Anna spent a year at the Nano Group, Southampton Nanofabrication Centre at the University of Southampton, UK, as a Research Fellow. From 2015 to 2017 she joined the group of Dr. David Payne at the Department of Materials at Imperial College as a research associate.

Anna is a member of the Royal Society of Chemistry (MRSC), the Materials Research Society, and of the Society of Austrian Chemists (GÖCH).
