Dr Rebecca Notman is a Royal Society University Research Fellow and Associate Professor based in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Warwick (Oct 2012 - Present). Her research interests lie in the modelling and simulation of a range of systems that have important applications in biomedicine, pharmaceutical science and materials science. A particular focus of her current research is on understanding the molecular structure and organisation of the human skin barrier and mechanisms for transdermal drug delivery.
From 2009 - 2012, Rebecca held an independent Science City Research Fellowship, also in Warwick, with an honorary position in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Birmingham. Rebecca first came to Warwick in 2007 to take up a PDRA position in Biomaterials Modelling, working with Dr Tiffany Walsh (2007 - 2009). Prior to this she achieved her PhD in Computational Pharmaceutical Science at King's College London, under the supervision of Professor Jamshed Anwar and Dr Massimo Noro (Unilever R&D) (2003 - 2007). Rebecca also has an MSc with Distinction in Molecular Modelling (2002) and a BSc in Biochemistry (First Class Hons., 2001) from Cardiff University.
