Alice came to Bangor University in 2013 to obtain a Masters of Chemistry in 2017. During her third year, Alice focused on organic chemistry where she worked on the synthesis of anti-inflammatory peptoids for the prevention of preterm birth. During her Fourth year, Alice is working with Dr. L. Jones focusing on the modification of pseudo metallocalixarenes for use in encapsulating large guest molecules such as fullerenes. Alice is funded by the CALIN network and will be working on the detection of Sepsis under the joint supervision of Dr’s Gwenin and Jones.
