I studied Chemistry at Imperial College London, working on electrochemical preparation and characterization of silver nanoparticles during my final year project with Dr. Paul Wilde. I have also worked on a study towards total synthesis of (-)-sparteine in Prof. Phil Parsons’ group and direct targeting of Rab GTPase through a structural-based method in Prof. Ed Tate’s group. I obtained the Imperial College Scholarship for undergraduate research programme in my second year. In my final year, I was awarded the Departmental prize for Outstanding Overall Performance.
In the Ley group for my MPhil, I will work towards the development of flow chemistry equipment as a machine assisted process for the discovery of new chemical reactivity of diazo intermediates and subsequent use as carbene precursors.
