Maggie was born in a small town of Australia called Ocean Grove near the beach. After graduation from her undergraduate degree she completed her Honours year at Monash University under the supervision of Dr. Kellie Tuck focusing on the synthesis of lanthanide-based complexes for the detection of biologically and environmental relevant ions. After the great experience working on this project, she completed her PhD with Dr. Kellie Tuck, Assoc. Prof. Bim Graham and Assoc. Prof. Mike Grace working on the same chemistry. In Paris, Maggie is working of the development of 89Zr-based radio imaging agents in collaboration with Prof. Thomas Mindt.

Maggie loves food, red wine and catching up with friends.
