I am working on developing and implementing novel healing chemistries, such as metal triflates, to repair internal damage in fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composites. My research is part of a multi-disciplinary project between ACCIS and the School of Chemistry under the supervision of Ian Bond, Richard Trask and Duncan Wass. I am funded through the ACCIS Doctoral Training Centre DTC where funding is provided by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL).
Previous to this research I studied an MSci Chemistry undergraduate degree at the University of Bristol, with a year in industry placement at the DuPont Experimental Station working on fluorosurfactant development.
