Awarded for her significant contributions to the assembly of metal complexes and their crystal engineering.

About the Winner

Michaele Hardie was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1970. 

She obtained her BSc and PhD degrees from the University of Melbourne, completing her PhD studies under the supervision of Bernard Hoskins and Richard Robson.

Michaele undertook postdoctoral posts with Alison Edwards at the University of Melbourne, A Alan Pinkerton at the University of Toledo, USA, and Colin Raston at Monash University, Australia working in the areas of chemical crystallography and supramolecular chemistry. 

In 2001 she was appointed to the University of Leeds as a lecturer in inorganic chemistry where she is currently a Reader.

Her research interests are in supramolecular and coordination chemistry, in particular in the development of new molecular hosts and their metallo-supramolecular assemblies. This research has led to the development of new coordination polymers and other types of network materials, along with hollow nano-scale discrete prisms including those with unusual or new chemical topologies.
