Dr Anita D’Angelo is a Beamline Scientist for the Powder Diffraction beamline at the Australian Synchrotron (ANSTO). In this role she supports user activities through the set-up of user experiments, and provides assistance and advice to users. Anita also collaborates and contributes to beamline development projects.

Prior to joining the Australian Synchrotron, Anita worked as a Diffraction Scientist at CSIRO Mineral Resources where she used advanced X-ray diffraction techniques to simulate industrial processes and investigate the composition of ore based minerals.

Anita's current research focuses on understanding the structural changes of catalytic materials under in-situ and in-operando conditions using diffraction techniques. She has particular interests in disordered materials and the identification of intermediates during phase transformations of materials and minerals. Her future research plans are in the short range structural analysis of solids and their application to developing advanced catalytic materials.

She is the secretary of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI) Women in Chemistry Group and a mentor in the Australian Science Innovations Curious Minds program.
