Following her undergraduate studies in Bio-Pharmaceutical Sciences at Leiden University, Dr Guijt obtained her PhD from Delft University of Technology, both in the Netherlands. She was awarded a fellowship from the Dutch Technology Foundation STW to initiate Lab on a Chip research at the University of Tasmania in 2003, followed by an ARC Australian Postdoctoral Fellowship (2004-2009). She was awarded a University of Tasmania Rising Star in 2009, an Australian Academy of Science Rod Rickards Fellowship (2010) and a Tall Poppy award (2012). In 2014, she received an Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship for Experienced researchers.
Dr Guijt teaches into Pharmacology (CSA230231/232/233/235), Pharmacology in Paramedic Practice (CSA236), and Medicinal Chemistry and Drug Development (CSA225/226).
Her pedagogic interest lies in the encouragement of deep learning to enhance understanding of fundamental concepts. She has completed two of the four units of the Graduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching and is experienced in unit design and coordination. As research-intensive member of staff, her scholarship focuses on research supervision. She researched the impact of tacit knowledge in the use of criterion referenced assessment of research theses in a cross disciplinary context. With Dr Howells from the School of Education and Professor Breadmore from the School of Physical Sciences, she studied of the impact of gratitude practice in a RHD supervision, realising deeper learning through enhancement of the student-supervisor relationship.
Dr Guijt is a cross-disciplinary academic with a strong research record, publishing predominantly in the top 20% in her field. Her research interests lie in the development of portable and field deployable instrumentation for applications of crucial significance to the pharmaceutical industry: personalised medicine, therapeutic drug/compliance monitoring and process analytical technology. She is also interested in environmental, food safety and forensic/security applications.
Locally, she collaborates with Prof Breadmore (ACROSS), prof Macka (ACROSS) A/Prof Bolch (AMC), Prof Shabala (TIA), Dr Powell (TIA), A/Prof Dickson (Menzies), Dr King (Medicine). Internationally, she works with Prof Ivory (Washington State University, USA), Prof Hauser (Basel University Switzerland), Prof Manz (KIST Europe, Germany), Prof Hankemeyer (Netherlands Proteomics Centre), Prof Eeltink (Free University Brussels, Belgium), Prof Schoenmakers (University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands) and Dr Haselberg (Free University, the Netherlands).
