Having been awarded my PhD from the University of Bristol in 2012 (Supervisor: Prof. Stephen Mann, FRS), for which i received a Faculty of Science Commendation, I conducted a short postdoc before moving to The Netherlands in 2014. During my tenure in Bristol, I was heavily involved in establishing new lines of research towards the development of a coacervate-based protocell model, which could be utilised to create hierarchical microsystems.
Moving to Radboud University (Nijmegen) in 2014, I joined the group of Prof. Jan van Hest in order to develop expertise towards the engineering of functional nano/micro-systems based utilizing copolymers. Working alongside a highly motivated team of researchers we developed a new route towards the fabrication of biodegradable nanotubes that have exciting applications in nanomedicine. Indeed, the engineering of copolymers towards the development of functional nanosystems is an exciting prospect for developing next-generation therapeutic technologies. With the move of the Bio-Organic Chemistry group to the Eindhoven University of Technology in late 2016, I took on the role of Research Fellow - leading up research into nanomedicine and functional protocellular systems.
Having been awarded a Ser Cymru II fellowship in 2017 I then moved to the new Department of Chemistry in Swansea University - Grove Extension, Office 342, +44 (0)1792 60 4852.
