Kylie has always been fascinated by how cells function, and to get a deeper understanding she studied Chemistry at the University of Melbourne and is now applying chemical techniques to address questions in biology. Her group are particularly interested in bacteria that live on hydrogen gas as their energy source and what they can teach us about using hydrogen as a sustainable fuel. Her group are also developing ways to harness enzymes in new ways for producing complex chemicals that are hard to synthesise in the laboratory. Kylie speaks regularly in schools about careers in chemistry.

Learning 3 - Learning from nature
How can Chemistry take inspiration from nature to create cleaner and more efficient ways of producing and using Hydrogen as an energy source?
Our Research – Learning to Juggle Changes Brain Wiring
In ‘Our Research’, one of our team will provide a brief overview of their research and latest findings. First in this series, Prof Heidi Johansen-Berg will explain how learning to juggle can lead to changes in brain structure.
