The group

Dr Stephanie Boer

StephSteph completed her PhD on metallosupramolecular chemistry at Monash University researching chiral coordination cages before joining the group as a postdoc in June 2017. She is working on the synthesis of a range of hydrogen-bonded framework materials. When she is not working Steph enjoys baking, being involved in her church, and attempting to read long classic novels, but generally ends up reading Agatha Christie.

Zeke Coady


Zeke is a third-year undergraduate student at the Australian National University. He is working on using supramolecular materials to make selective catalysts. Outside the lab, Zeke enjoys long walks and is learning how to juggle

Emer Foyle


Emer completed her BSc(Hons) at the University of Canterbury in 2016. She started a PhD in 2018 working on anion templated architectures. In her spare time Emer enjoys attending ballet classes, tramping* and reading.

Riley Sanders


Riley is an undergraduate researcher currently in the second year of his degree. As the young gun of the group, he is constantly changing his field of interest, from anion receptors to molecular frameworks, and hopes to one day go into nanotechnology and molecular machines. Riley juggles his free time between high-level rowing training, rowing coaching and watching rowing videos until he is eventually pressured into socialising instead.

Chriso Maria Thomas

ChrisoChriso started her PhD in 2017, having completed her Master of Science at Loyola College in Chennai (India) in 2016. She is working on the synthesis of three-dimensional porous materials. In her leisure time, she enjoys reading romantic novels, cooking and listening to music.
