Dr Carol Hua

Dr Carol Hua

Congratulations to Dr Carol Hua (MRACI CChem) on receiving the Royal Australian Chemical Institute's 2016 Cornforth Medal for the best PhD thesis in Australia.

Carol completed her PhD in 2016 in the Molecular Materials Group working on the development of electroactive nanoporous materials (molecular complexes, metal-organic frameworks and porous organic polymers). She is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Limerick, Ireland, with Professor Mike Zaworotko, working on the development of nanoporous materials as carbon dioxide sensors and for the storage and delivery of NO in biomedical applications.

Carol was recently awarded two prestigious postdoctoral fellowships including the a Dow Chemical Company Fellowship of the American-Australian Association and an Endeavour Fellowship which she will commence in May 2017 at Northwestern University with Associate Professor David Harris, focusing on stimuli-responsive magnetic materials.
