Ms Jenny Boge

Jenny is a Coating Research Scientist at BlueScope Steel. After graduating with an Advanced Bachelor of Science in Chemistry with Honours from the University of Wollongong, Jenny joined BlueScope as part of their graduate program in 2009.

She built up a skill-base across various analytical chemistry techniques and became interested in BlueScope’s painted steel products. She is heavily involved in the development and assessment of new painted products for BlueScope’s businesses. She currently manages the product development pipeline and co-ordinates the evaluation of coated products for New Zealand which has a unique market and challenging environmental conditions.

Jenny hopes to use her knowledge of painted steel products to drive research that is ground-breaking but also provides solutions to problems and gaps that have been identified in the market.

Within the Steel Research Hub, she is working in the area of anti-microbial coatings research.
