Rosanne is a researcher with 39 peer reviewed publications and a h-factor of 18. Her internationally competitive research is highly transdisciplinary and involves the design, fabrication and use of Lab on a Chip devices. Applications of her work range from organic synthesis and chemical analysis to neuroscience and diagnostics.
Before her appointment in the School of Pharmacy, Rosanne worked in ACROSS, School of Chemistry since 2003. Rosanne did her undergraduate degree, comparable with a BSc Hons, in Biopharmaceutical Sciences at Leiden University (1994-1998, the Netherlands). She was awarded her PhD from Delft University in 2003, having worked between Kluyver Institute for Biotechnology, Delft Institute for Micro Electromechanical Systems (DIMES), the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology (University of Twente) in the Netherlands and the Institute de Microtechnique (IMT) at the University of Neuchatel in Switzerland. Her PhD project involved the development of a chip based miniaturised total analysis system (µTAS) for real time monitoring of fermentations. In 2003, she moved to UTAS on a fellowship from the Dutch Foundation for Science and Technology STW to initiate Lab on a Chip research. At UTAS, she has been successful in applying for external research funding, and has held 3 ARC Discovery grants, one including a postdoctoral fellowship (2005-2010). She received a UTAS Rising Stars award and an AAS Rod Rickards Fellowship in 2010.
Rosanne built up the Lab on a Chip research at UTAS and established fruitful collaborations within the school of Pharmacy, with the schools of Chemistry, Agricultural Science, Medicine, Human Life Sciences and Engineering and with the Central Science Laboratory, the Australian Maritime College and the Menzies Research Institute.
Rosanne coordinates and teaches Pharmacology.
