Biography I completed my integrated Master’s in Chemistry with Drug Discovery at the University of Bath in 2020. My MChem project focused on the synthesis of pharmaceutical co-crystals of the phenylpropanoid family and I was supervised by Professor Chick Wilson. I then worked as a research assistant in the chemical engineering department at the University of Bath under Dr Bernardo Castro Dominguez, where I worked on making new biodegradable food packaging materials that would lengthen the shelf life of climacteric fruits.
Research My PhD aims to look at the mechanisms behind agglomeration in agitated dryers to be able to develop tools that can be useful for the successful scale-up of agitated dryers. I am supervised by Dr Rachel Smith and Prof Jim Litster and this is funded by EPSRC and AstraZeneca.
