I recently graduated from Warwick University with a Master in Chemistry.
During my degree, I developed an interest in electro-analytical chemistry, from my project with Prof. Mauro Bertotti (Preparation of Gold Micro-Electrodes for Biological Applications). Hence, when considering possible PhD opportunities, the CDT in Diamond Science and Technology became particularly interesting, due to the PhD project (Bioanalytical Application of Diamond Electrodes). In addition, the interdisciplinary nature of the program, and the two ten-week mini projects, provides a unique opportunity to acquire experience and knowledge in various relevant areas.
PhD Title: Bioanalytical Applications of Diamond Electrodes
PhD Supervisor: Prof Julie Macpherson
Institution: University of Warwick
