The Garden research group is led by Associate Professor Anna Garden of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Otago, which is situated in Dunedin, New Zealand. Our research interests are focused on using a computational approach to investigate catalysis of small molecule reactions on both extended and nanoparticle catalysts.
