Dr Rosalie Hocking


Rosalie Hocking is a chemist who leads a program studying small molecule transformations at Swinburne University of Technology. She is particularly fascinated with the chemical reactions of carbon dioxide, nitrogen and water as they key for the development of a carbon neutral economy. Her works uses a variety of analytical and chemical methodologies including the Australian synchrotron where her group are regular users of the XAS beamline.  Rosalie completed her PhD in physical and inorganic chemistry from the University Sydney in 2004. She has since held positions Stanford University/Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory, CSIRO Land and Water, Monash University and James Cook University.  She has recently joined Swinburne University of Technology as a Vice Chancellor’s Women in STEM fellow & senior lecturer.
