Sarah completed her MChem at the University of St Andrews in 2015. Her fourth year project was supervised by Dr Eli Zysman-Colman and involved the synthesis of ligands for luminescent iridium complexes. Sarah also completed a summer placement looking at gold and silver nanoparticles in Dr Euan Kay’s group. Under the supervision of Prof. Russel Morris, Sarah undertook her final year project, developing nitric oxide releasing Metal Organic Frameworks for use in novel antibacterial coatings. For her PhD project, Sarah will be working with Dr Neil Robertson and Dr Stephen Thomas looking at light mediated hydrogenation via water splitting at the University of Edinburgh. Outside of chemistry, Sarah enjoys baking, painting her nails, walks with the dogs and meeting up with friends for coffee and chats.
