Emma Sackville

Emma completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Bristol, graduating with an MSci in Chemistry in 2012. Her final year project involved looking at Boron/Zinc transmetallation to generate aryl nucleophiles, during which time she also developed a strong interest in public engagement. After graduation, she took a year out, working in finance for 6 months before travelling round South America. Other interests include music, dance and baking.
