I completed my MChem degree at the University of Warwick in June 2014. My placement year was spent at Novartis Pharmaceuticals in which I was involved in a medicinal chemistry project for the treatment of asthma. Under the supervision of Professor Mike Shipman, my master’s project was focused on an asymmetric synthetic step towards a natural product. My research interests are in the field of organic synthesis, in particular the development of new synthetic methodology and the total synthesis of natural products. In my spare time, I enjoy playing the flute as part of a wind orchestra.
