I have recently completed my MChem studies at the University of Oxford. My final year research project, under the supervision of Professor Stephen Faulkner, focused on the synthesis and halide binding properties of luminescent lanthanide complexes. This research led me to my current interest in the design and synthesis of ligand species for use in metal-based imaging probes. I hope that the Medical Imaging CDT programme will allow me to expand my knowledge and skills in this field alongside offering new insight into the multidisciplinary area of imaging sciences on the whole, both within the laboratory and beyond.
