I first joined the Cronin group in 2012 for my undergraduate degree project studying the self-assembly of silver-infused tungstate POM clusters. After graduating, I returned to begin a PhD. This time, my efforts are focused on exploring the synthesis of nano-scale polyoxothiomolybdates through traditional one-pot processes and automated flow systems with a view to producing never before seen architectures. When I'm not in the lab, you can expect to find me in the swimming pool, attending bouts of roller derby or just relaxing with some music or a book.
