Dr. Ana M. Geer obtained her PhD in the University of Zaragoza, under the supervision of Prof. M. A. Ciriano and Dr. C. Tejel on the synthesis and coordination chemistry of group 9 transition metals (Rh and Ir) combined with anionic ligands, such as tris (phosphino)borate and tris(pyrazolyl)borate ligands. During this time, she undertook a three-month stay at the LCC in Toulouse under the guidance of Prof. S. Sabo-Etienne and Dr. S. Bontemps. In 2015, she joined the groups of Prof. Champness and Dr. Kays as a postdoctoral research fellow where her work focused on the synthesis and reactivity studies of low-coordinate 1st-row transition metal complexes and Main group complexes. In 2018, she joined the Gunnoe group where she worked on the development of catalysts for electrochemical water oxidation. In 2020, Dr. Geer joined the Institute for Chemical Synthesis and Homogeneous Catalysis (ISQCH-CSIC) as Juan de la Cierva Fellow. She is currently developing her independent research line focusing on the use of base metals for catalytic applications in relevant chemical transformations related to energy processes, sustainable chemistry, and new materials. She is part of the Inorganic Molecular Architecture and Applications group led by Dr. C. Tejel.
