Laura graduated from Heriot-Watt University with an MChem in Chemistry in 2018. During her time there she undertook a summer project synthesising mechanoluminescent nano-particles. Her final year research project was based on the synthesis of novel, sterically crowded carboranes as a route to mixed-ligand ruthenacarboranes. In her free time Laura enjoys baking, reading and sleeping.
