Bill Cunningham

Bill graduated from the University of Bath in 2013 with a MChem degree for drug discovery. He undertook a placement year at BAT where he investigated the effectiveness of different carbon types on the removal of vapour phase smoke toxicants.  During his final year at university he worked on developing potential catalysts for [2+2] ketene alkene cycloadditions. In his spare time Bill likes to play sport and is currently attempting to improve his surfing skills.
