British background but born and raised in Munich. Completed my B.Sc. and M.Sc. at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in chemistry. Major and minor subjects were inorganic chemistry and physical chemistry respectively, and my most recent laboratory research for my master thesis focused on metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and microfluidics. This included the bottom-up design and manufacture of a microfluidic device using MOFs for in-flow catalysis.Finally, previous work experience includes founding a student company and running it for 2 years, as well as a brief internship with Deutsche Bahn Systemtechnik GmbH in the marketing division.
