I am researching physical chemistry at Cardiff University mainly focused on the use of nano-magnetic material for diagnostics. Magneto-optic effects are an intriguing area of study and I love researching into it. This technology has already been used to develop a hand held malaria point of care diagnostic device. This resulted in cheaper testings for those in poverty. I am working on adapting this technique to diagnose Septicemia.
Another topic I am interested in is the valorfication of renewable feedstocks. More specifically taking waste products of large scale industrial process' and using them in the formation of valuable products. I believe Nano-technology is at forefront of scientific development and is of the utmost importance when tackling such problems as global warming.
