In March 2016 I moved to Lubrizol Ltd in Derbyshire to take up the position of Technology Manager in the Strategic Technology team in the Engine Oils business segment.
Until February 2016 I was a Research Fellow, based in the O'Reilly research group in the Department of Chemistry. I was a senior member of a diverse team which tackles both fundamental and applied challenges in polymer chemistry. Projects target a range of applications including engine oil additives, detergent formulations, enhanced oil recovery, biomedical therapeutics and diagnostics, and biomaterials.
My principle projects focussed on the synthesis and characterisation of polymers and polymer nanomaterials with controlled architecture and functionality, as part of an ERC funded project to develop sequence controlled synthetic polymers.
I was born and raised in Jersey, Channel Islands, where I completed my school education. I then moved to the U.K. to undertake a degree in Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge. I graduated in 2009 with a first class BA having completed a final year in Chemistry, while also studying Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in my first and second years. I then completed an MSc in Chemistry at University of Kent, Canterbury, under the supervision of Dr Simon Holder, where my research focused on the synthesis of hyperbranched polysiloxanes.
In October 2010 I started a PhD in Chemistry at University of Warwick, under the supervision of Prof. Rachel O'Reilly. I submitted by thesis in March 2014, with the title "Bromo and thio maleimides for functionalisation and fluorescent labelling of polymers and polymer nanoparticles." I then continued in the O'Reilly group as an Institute of Advanced Study Early Career Fellow.
