Partner student with Diamond Light Source (Harwell), on the Interdisciplinary Bioscience DTP
University of Reading (2014-2018)
MChem chemistry with a year in industry at GSK (Medicines Research Centre, Stevenage)
MChem Research Project: Determining the georgaphical provenance of honey samples using spectroscopic and spectrometric analytical techniques: FT-IR, NMR, IRMS (isotope ratio MS) and ICP-MS (inductively coupled plasma MS).
GSK Placement: Employment of laser based mid-infrared imaging in order to monitor, in situ, a fast (sub-second) chemical reaction in flow. A method was subsequently developed to semi-automate the quantification of reaction kinetics from the resulting hyperspectral images.
DPhil research project in multi-modal imaging of hyperaccumulator plants in the group of Gail Preston.
