Teaching Associate, Faculty of Science
Katie completed her MChem degree in 2009 at the University of Bath including an industrial placement year at GSK Stevenage within Research and Development working on respiratory and anti-malarial treatments. Following this she completed her PhD in 2013 on the development of novel ruthenium catalysts for asymmetric hydrogenation applications at the University of Warwick with Prof. Martin Wills. Katie then went on to gain experience in organic flow and process chemistry via postdoctoral positions with Prof. John Blacker at the University of Leeds (2013-2016) and Prof. Richard Brown at the University of Southampton (2016-2018). Katie returned to GSK for a short time working on the development of a novel antibiotic, before taking up a teaching position at the University of Nottingham in 2019. Within the School of Chemistry at Nottingham, Katie teaches within the Organic Section and also on business and enterprise modules within the department both for the degree apprenticeship program and also on the full-time undergraduate programs.
