She is also the Assistant Director and conductor for the ANU New Music Ensemble, and has teaching experience at a tertiary level as a tutor and guest lecturer.

She has been recognised and awarded for her work as a composer, both nationally and internationally.
Chloë has completed a Bachelor of Music with first class honours at the ANU and her academic excellence has been recognised by both the ANU and the Golden Key International Honours Society, of which she has been an awarded member since 2012. She is currently a composition PhD candidate at ANU, undertaking a practise-based research project that focuses on the exploration of fluid musical hierarchies.
