Dr. Ana M. Geer is a Tenured Scientist (Científica Titular) at the Institute for Chemical Synthesis and Homogeneous Catalysis (ISQCH-CSIC). 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. Dr. Geer obtained her PhD at the University of Zaragoza in the group of Prof. M. A. Ciriano and Dr. C. Tejel on the synthesis and coordination chemistry of group 9 transition metals 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 at the University of Nottingham (UoN) 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 at the University of Virginia (UVA) where she worked on the development of catalysts for electrochemical water oxidation. In 2020, she moved back to the University of Zaragoza after obtaining a Juan de la Cierva Fellowship and in 2022 a Ramon y Cajal Fellowship. She has recently obtained a permanent position as a Research Scientist at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) where she leads the Inorganic Molecular Architecture and Applications group together with Dr. C. Tejel.
