Anna began her role as a Commercialisation Specialist at Waikatolink in October 2018. Previous to this, she spent several years working in the commercialisation and tech transfer space of science. Having completed her PhD in Chemistry and Nanomaterials at Victoria University of Wellington in 2013, Anna began work at Boutiq Science Ltd. (start-up from VUW, MacDiarmid Inst. and VicLink) as the go-to for sales and product development. In 2016, Boutiq and VicLink successfully partnered with the University of South Australia and gained investment from PowerHouse Ventures to spin-off the new company Ferronova Pty Ltd. From this, Anna’s role developed further into business, product and medical regulatory development. Having a keen interest in working with people from various backgrounds, Anna now joins Waikatolink to further support research and commercialisation in New Zealand.
