Gemma-Louise is a Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Chemistry, supported by an Institute of Advanced Study Global Research Fellowship. She joined the University of Warwick in October 2013 to carry out research into multifunctional nanostructures for biomedical applications.
Gemma-Louise gained a BA Mod Chem from Trinity College Dublin in Ireland in 2006. She remained in TCD to study for her PhD in the School of Chemistry and CRANN Institute under the supervision of Prof Yurii Gun'ko. She completed her PhD, entitled "Development of New Silica and Magnetic-Luminescent Silica Nanostructured Materials" in 2011, during which she developed a passion for studying the engineering of nanomaterials for biomedical applications and cultivated collaborations with scientists from around the world. Gemma-Louise carried out a brief Industry-supported Post-Doc in TCD before moving to the University of Oxford to carry out a Post-Doc with Prof. Jason Davis for 2 years, she she worked on an interdisciplinary project, with numerous collaborations spanning Chemistry, Physiology, Orthopaedics and Molecular Medicine.
