Graduate student (2011-)
Amelie obtained her undergraduate degree in Chemistry with Biochemistry (1st class MChem), with the William H Perkin Prize for Organic Chemistry, from Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh (2011). During her final year, she worked with Nicola Howarth on the development of a novel route towards N(2)-carbamate-guanyl-acetic acid derivatives as HIV-1 non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors. Amelie’s PhD project focuses on the programmed assembly of gold nanoparticles using DNA click chemistry. Her research is jointly supervised by Tom Brown and Antonios Kanaras.
