Academic and Professional Background

Academic Qualifications

University of Warwick, MSc in Molecular Analytical Science

Conducted in September 2016 to September 2017.

University of Warwick, MChem (Hons) in Chemistry with Industrial Training

Conducted in October 2012 to July 2016.

Previous Professional Experience

AstraZeneca, Sandwich Student in Analytical Sciences

During my placement at AstraZeneca, I work as part of a team who dealt with the continuous maintenance and submissions for commercially available medicines. Whilst here, I work on method development and validation (according to ICH guidelines) of analytical methods to analyse active pharmaceutical ingredients.

Conducted in July 2014 to September 2015.

Previous Research Projects

University of Warwick, MSc Miniproject 2

In this project, the mechanism of hydrophobic interaction chromatography (HILIC) was investigated under different mobile and stationary phase conditions by comparison of relaxation rates collected using magic angle spinning solid state NMR.

MSc Miniproject 2 conducted in July 2017 to September 2017 (10 week).

Supervised by Józef Lewandowski.

University of Warwick, MSc Miniproject 1

This project measured the electrochemical behaviour of Naltrexone hydrochloride using different electrode materials and sample concentrations. Subsequently, once the electrochemical detection had been coupled to a HPLC, the electrochemical detectors response was compared to the traditional UV response. The comparison looked at the relative responses of Naltrexone and its oxidative degradation products to determine the selectivity, reproducibility and linearity of response of the two detectors of interest.

MSc Miniproject 1 conducted in April 2017 to July 2017 (10 week).

Supervised by Julie Macpherson, Susana da Silva Torres (Pfizer) and Mark Taylor (Pfizer).

University of Warwick, MChem Project and URSS Project

The aim of this project was to produce a boron doped diamond electrochemical sensors and accompanying methodlogy capable of detecting high concentrations (1400 - 140, 000 ppm) of hypochlorite under highly alkaline conditions (pH > 13) and low concentrations (0.05 - 10 ppm) of hypochlorite in seawater matrices.

MChem project conducted in October 2015 to April 2016 (20 week).

URSS project conducted in June 2016 to August 2016 (10 week).

Supervised by Roy Meyler and Julie Macpherson.

AstraZeneca, Placement Project

The first aim of this project was to look at whether bond dissociation energy predictions could be matched to the radical formation in active pharmaceutical ingredients under thermal degradation conditions using electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy. In the second part of the project a comparison study was performed between an Adani Benchtop EPR spectrometer and a Bruker EMX X-Band EPR spectrometer. This evaluation compared the sensitivity and resolution of the two systems as well as, the ease of use of the spectrometer.

Placement project conducted in April 2015 to June 2015 (12 week).

Supervised by Helen Williams.
