I began studying for my MChem Chemistry degree at the University of East Anglia (UEA), Norwich in September 2011 and completed it in 2015. During my degree I conducted a Master’s level year-long research project as part of the Fielden Group in the Energy & Materials Lab at UEA. My research was focussed on enhancing the nonlinear optical properties of polyoxometalate-based chromophores. This involved synthesising unique hexamolybdate polyoxometalate (POM) chromophores in order to test their optical properties for use in all-optical computing devices. Other experiences from my degree programme are shown below:
Experience in coding using HTML, CSS, jQuery and some PHP for the creation of dynamic and interactive websites, and also experience of using the Twitter Bootstrap framework to produce mobile-first, responsive websites. I have experience using Git to track changes throughout a project’s history. This website, for example, was produced using the Bootstrap framework, with CSS and jQuery to add functionality.
