She is working as part of an interdisciplinary team of computational scientists to prepare scientific applications for the next supercomputer at ORNL. She is also pursuing research in the area of relativistic effects in heavy-element chemistry and quantum chemistry applications in modern programming languages.

Fitzsimmons has a background in physical and computational chemistry research and in teaching physical and general chemistry to undergraduate students.

After completing a doctorate in chemistry at the University of Alberta in 2014, she worked as an adjunct instructor at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan. While there, she developed curriculum for and taught upper level undergraduate chemistry courses.
