I graduated with an MSci in Chemistry from Imperial College London in June 2016. In my final year I worked on a project synthesising dual modal imaging probes using upconversion nanoparticles. The work sparked my interest in the area of medical imaging, specifically synthesising nanoparticle probes for biomedical imaging. My MSci project gave me a taste of the field and I had opportunity to collaborate with researchers, both in the Physics department at Imperial College London and researchers working at Hong Kong Baptist University. I'm looking forward to continued collaboration during my time at the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training.
