Isabel Thomlinson

Izzy graduated from the University of Oxford in 2016 with an MChem in Chemistry. During her degree she did a summer research project making thin films of zinc oxide for use as transparent conductors, and a final year project synthesising lanthanide porphyrin complexes in order to investigate their magnetic properties. Having had sustainability drummed into her from a young age, she hopes to combine this with her scientific background to do some interesting and useful research at the CSCT. When she escapes the lab she enjoys doing karate, painting and drawing, and being outdoors.
