Kylie Vincent

Dr Kylie Vincent studied chemistry at the University of Melbourne, Australia, gaining her Ph.D. in the group of Stephen Best in 2003. She carried out postdoctoral research at the University of Oxford, UK, with Fraser Armstrong and held a Junior Research Fellowship at Wadham College, Oxford, from 2003–2007. In 2007 she took up a Research Fellowship at Oxford University and a Senior Research Fellowship at Wadham College. In 2008 she was appointed to a Senior Research Fellowship at Jesus College, Oxford.
Her research interests include using electrochemical and spectroelectrochemical methods to understand biological redox catalysis — in particular the efficient oxidation or production of hydrogen by microbial hydrogenase enzymes, studying enzyme active sites during catalytic turnover, and exploiting enzyme catalysis in energy cycling.
