Jessica is a Nuclear Chemist in the Nuclear Fuel Cycle Research Theme at ANSTO. Jessica undertook her PhD part-time jointly at the University of Sydney and ANSTO (2011-2016), researching novel materials for radiochemical separations. These kinds of materials have applications for the treatment of nuclear waste but also mining and wastewater clean-up. Jessica has expertise in synthesis and characterisation of organic and inorganic materials including organo-functionalised porous frameworks and ceramics. She is interested in designing and understanding materials that can be used to improve safety and sustainability at the front and back ends of the nuclear fuel cycle.
