I read Chemistry (MChem) at the University of Oxford, Brasenose College. During my Master's thesis I developed a high-throughput screening technique for oxygen sensing enzymes. I now have the opportunity to branch out into a very innovative field of medical sciences. My main interest is in applying chemistry to design advanced probes for medical imaging. By the end of my PhD I hope to have acquired both critical and creative thinking and be equipped with a large portfolio of laboratory techniques.
