Maya Singer Hobbs

Maya graduated from the University of Sheffield in 2014 with an MChem. She also spent a year studying in Montreal, where alongside her studies she undertook a project researching nitrogen rich compounds. Her MChem project focused on homogeneous iridium-based catalysis for industrial applications. In her spare time, you’ll find her riding her bike whilst thinking about the optimal packing strategy for fitting cakes in her panniers (she thinks it’s face-centred cubic)
