Wit obtained his PhD at the University of Adelaide in 2014 under the supervision of Profs Sumby and Doonan. His project focused on the design and synthesis of flexible metal-organic frameworks for gas separations and catalysis. In 2015, he was awarded a 24-month Alexander von Humboldt post-doctoral fellowship focusing on supramolecular coordination cages which he undertook in the Laboratory of Prof Clever (University of Goettingen and TU Dortmund, Germany). Wit was awarded a University of Adelaide Ramsay fellowship in 2017 which enabled him to return to Australia and commence his independent career. In 2019, Wit was awarded an ARC DECRA fellowship at the same institution to develop functional porous materials using supramolecular assemblies. This novel approach leads to materials that can be tailored to a wide range of applications including gas separations, heterogenous catalysis and environmental remediation.
