Overview

Associate Professor Elizabeth Krenske leads a computational chemistry laboratory which specialises in modelling molecular structure and behaviour, from small molecules to proteins. The laboratory has a particular focus on studying transition states and chemical reaction mechanisms, and on the computational prediction of the outcomes of chemical reactions. A/Prof. Krenske obtained her PhD in synthetic main-group chemistry at The Australian National University's Research School of Chemistry, where she worked with Professor Bruce Wild. After two years of postdoctoral research at the ANU she was awarded a Fulbright Postdoctoral Scholarship and spent two years at the University of California, Los Angeles, working in the field of theoretical and computational chemistry with Professor Kendall Houk. She returned to Australia in 2009 as an ARC Australian Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Melbourne, and moved to The University of Queensland in 2012 as an ARC Future Fellow. She is currently an Associate Professor in the UQ School of Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences.

A/Prof. Krenske is a Fellow of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute, Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, and Associate Editor of the RSC journal Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry.
