Marine chemical ecology. Cold-water coral reefs. Deep-sea sponge behaviour. Natural product chemistry.
2021 – Master in Science in Natural Sciences from the University of Durham (first class with honours)
My Master’s research project investigated the stability of the shapeshifting barbaralyl cation, both through synthesis and density functional theory calculations.
2017 – A-levels in Biology (A*), Chemistry (A*), Physics (A) and Maths (A*)
Active research projects:
The role of sponge competition on cold-water coral reefs: Remotely operated vehicle video analyses and secondary metabolite profiling in the search for compounds of ecological and medical relevance.
