Date of start of studies 1 October 2013
Supervisors Professor Colin Creaser and Dr James Reynolds.

In 2013 I graduated from Loughborough University with a First-class Hons MChem degree in Chemistry with Analytical Science. Later in 2013, I joined the Centre for Analytical Science at Loughborough University to start a PhD under the joint supervision of Professor Colin Creaser and Dr James Reynolds, with Owlstone Limited as an industrial collaborator.

My current research focuses on the use of chip-based field asymmetric waveform ion mobility spectrometry (FAIMS) to enhance the analysis of potential biomarkers of oxidative stress via the development of the combination of FAIMS with liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-FAIMS-MS) orthogonal separations. Other research interests include an investigation into small molecule non-covalent complexes using drift tube ion mobility-mass spectrometry and FAIMS-MS.

 

Project Title: The development and application of chip-based FAIMS combined with mass spectrometry in bioanalysis.
