Anna is a Reader in Bioinorganic Chemistry in the School of Chemistry. She leads the Peacock Research Group, a diverse, vibrant and enthusiastic group of researchers working at the interface of inorganic chemistry and peptide design. The group are focused on developing novel metallopeptides capable of function beyond the repertoire of biology.

Anna grew up in The Netherlands, but graduated from the University of York (UK) with a MChem in 2003. Here she was first exposed to Bioinorganic Chemistry research when she performed her dissertation project with Professor Robin Perutz and Dr Anne-Kathrin Duhme-Klair. She then went on to complete a PhD under the supervision of Professor Peter Sadler FRS at the University of Edinburgh (Scotland) in 2007. After this Anna moved to a post-doctoral position at the University of Michigan (USA) with Professor Vincent Pecoraro. In 2009 she joined the School of Chemistry at the University of Birmingham.
