Michelle is interested in the theoretical understanding of novel materials for energy applications.

Michelle employs computational methods to study the functional underpinnings of new energy materials. In particular, she is working on catalysts for use in hydrogen production. 

​Michelle is a fourth-year undegraduate science student. Michelle has received a scholarship from the Hessen State Government and a travel grant from the UQ Employability Centre to study nanoscience at the University of Kassel, Germany. She has also received funding to participate in the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) Winter Course Program. She is currently working as an intern through the AIBN Research Internship program.
