Liam Smith

"My current research is within the world of artificial photosynthesis, trying to produce molecules that would hopefully end our reliance on harmful fossil fuels. Other than that I have gained a copious amount of transferable skills that would be perfect within the chemical industry or professional environment."

Song Hee Yeo

"The MSc(Res) course helped me to realise I definitely wanted to do a PhD in organic chemistry. The masters course had given me the experience of how it would be as a PhD student, as I worked in the lab along with other PhD students and a postdoctoral researchers for one year."
