Jasmine Lightfoot

Jasmine graduated from the University of Sheffield with a Masters degree in Chemistry. She spent her year in industry researching the use of bio-derived monomers in polyester and urethane acrylate resins at Scott Bader. Building on her interest in sustainability, she spent her Master’s project synthesising novel Microporous Organic Polymers for carbon dioxide capture. In her spare time, Jasmine enjoys playing music, triathlons and has recently taken up ice hockey.
