Sue Gibson graduated in Natural Sciences from Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge University (1978-81), after which she went on to do research in synthetic chemistry for her D.Phil degree at Oxford University under the supervision of Prof. Stephen G. Davies (1981-84). In 1984 she became a B. P. Research Fellow with Prof. Davies and studied organoiron complexes as models for homogeneous carbon monoxide reduction. In 1985 she was awarded a Royal Society Research Fellowship to do postdoctoral research at ETH, Zurich with Prof. Albert Eschenmoser where she studied reactions of cobalt in a corphin macrocycle. She returned to England a year later to start her independent academic career as a Lecturer at Warwick University (1985-1990). In 1990 she moved to Imperial College London as a lecturer in chemistry, and went on to become Reader of chemistry in 1995. She moved to King's College London in 1999 to become the Daniell Professor of Chemistry. She returned to Imperial College London in 2003 as a Professor in Chemistry.
