Shortly after she was promoted to analytical division, which introduced her into the world of Mass spectrometry.
After migrating to Australia in 2004, she joined the Mass Spectrometry unit at the Research school of chemistry. Stemming from her work in New Zealand, Anitha specializes in synthetic small organic molecule analyses. She provides and maintains a high ratio of comprehensive analytical support to over 20 research groups in RSC, RSB and surrounding area, in particular in reaction monitoring, identification, accurate mass measurements, purity checks and characterisation of synthetic compounds.
The research interests of RSC varies extensively and synthesize very small, volatile and unstable organic compounds to very big macro-cyclic compounds.
