Position: Research Associate Institution: University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) Department: Centre of Material Science Address: School of Physical Sciences & Computing, Chemsitry Devision UCLan, Preston
I am currently a research associate at UCLan’s centre of material science for Dr Reddy’s Wellcome Trust project in Smart Materials: Development of Molecularly Imprinted Polymers as Synthetic Antibodies for the Metaphylactic and Therapeutic Treatment of Viral Infection.
I am a dual national, innovative and energetic individual with excellent communication skills and an impeccable work ethic. I am very much keen on international collaborative research opportunities. I received a BSc, MRes and PhD in Chemistry at the University of Surrey, one of the top 5 UK universities. The PhD, jointly funded by NERC and the RSC (ACTF) under Dr Reddy and Dr Stevenson, encompassed the research and development of smart material biosensors for pathogens and biomarkers. I completed two PGRA positions with Dr Reddy at the University of Surrey and a PDRA with Dr Bailey and Dr Salguero at the Surrey Ion Beam Centre/School of Veterinary Medicine.
