Anke Husmann received her Diplom Physik from the Universität Göttingen, Germany, working with the late Professor Manfred Schroeder on numerical simulations of chaotic systems. She moved to the University of Chicago, USA, for her PhD where she conducted experiments under Professor Thomas Rosenbaum, now President of Caltech, on quantum phase transitions at low temperatures. She accepted a research scientist position on spintronic devices at the Toshiba Cambridge Research Laboratory, Cambridge, after working as a postdoc in Helsinki, Finland (research on solid Helium) and in Oxford, UK (research on magnetic and superconducting materials with µSR). She then took a break from research and taught for the Open University, Science Department. A Daphne Jackson Returners Fellowship enabled her to return to scientific research which she took up at the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy, working on ice templating of collagen. More recently, she obtained an Isaac Newton Trust grant to work on energy materials. Currently, she is working on plastics from renewable resources as part of the Centre for Creative Circular Economy Approaches to Eliminate Plastic Waste, CirPlas.
