Ella Ogilvy, an undergraduate student currently studying in the School of Chemistry, has been awarded a Carnegie Vacation Scholarship.
Carnegie Vacation Scholarships enable undergraduate students to develop their independent research skills through a summer project. Ella's project will be on "Development of UV-NMR for Kinetic Monitoring of Organic Photo-switches” in collaboration with Yael Ben-Tal, a first-year PhD student in the Lloyd-Jones group. As part of the award Ella will also present a poster on her project at the Vacation Scholarship Poster Competition which will take place on 3rd September 2019, at the Technology and Innovation Centre at the University of Strathclyde.
Gulsevim Adyin, who is also an undergraduate from the School of Chemistry, has also been awarded a Carnegie Vacation Scholarship. She will work in the School of Biosciences at the University of Edinburgh on a project to “arm” bacterial cells against chemical catalysts as a strategy to create chemo-compatible organisms for synthetic chemistry.
Justinas Sakas has also been awarded a Carnegie Vacation Scholarship to conduct a research project in the Bell research group this summer. Justinas’s project will involve the creation of hyphenated nD NMR experiments for complex mixture elucidation. These experiments will be created using tea samples but ultimately will be aimed for any complex natural mixture.
Congratulations to Ella, Gulsevim and Justinas!
