Brief History

I have recently graduated from Plymouth University obtaining a First Class in BSc Chemistry. My final year project, supervised by Professor Steve Rowland, involved the synthesis of novel naphthenic acids and investigating their association with the inherent toxicity of the large pools of process water formed as a result of the processing of oil sands.

In the summer of 2013 I completed an internship in the pharmaceutical industry working for Lonza Biologics, Slough. I have also spent time in the petroleum industry, Intertek, Sunbury.

In October 2014 I started my PhD under the supervision of Professor Steve Rowland and Dr Anthony Lewis. The PhD is provisionally titled: 'The Polar Constituents of Petroleum' and initial work has focussed on the development of a new method for the separation of heavy crude oils.
