Lisa Martin received her Ph.D. degree from the Australian National University under the guidance of Professor Alan Sargeson, prior to receiving an Alexander von Humboldt, then a Fulbright Fellowship in Germany and USA, with Karl Wieghardt and Barbara Burgess, respectively. She was appointed to Flinders University in South Australia, then after a decade to Monash University where she is currently Associate Professor. Her research interests are in biological and medicinal chemistry (cytochrome P450 enzymes that synthesise steroids and membrane activity of antimicrobial peptides) and charge transfer materials based on TTF and TCNQFx compounds. She has worked with Alan Bond since her Ph.D. days and currently enjoys working with him on one of the three ARC Discovery grants which they have shared.

Anthony O’Mullane received his Ph.D. degree in 2001 from University College Cork and completed postdoctoral fellowships at Technische Universitat Darmstadt, the University of Warwick, and Monash University with Alan Bond. He previously held a position at RMIT University (Australia) from 2008 until 2013, when he moved to QUT. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and Royal Australian Chemical Institute. His research interests are the electrochemical synthesis and characterisation of nanostructured materials, electrocatalysis, Li metal-based batteries, and the application of electrochemical methods to various aspects of physical, chemical, and biological science. He has worked with Alan Bond since 2004 and continues to collaborate with him.
