Sarah Abou-Shehada

Sarah graduated with a MChem in Chemistry from the University of Bath in 2010, during which she carried out two research projects; the first in the synthesis of group 14 tetra-selenophenyl derivatives and her final year project in the synthesis of inositols via a microbial arene oxidation intermediate. Her main areas of interest are in organic synthesis and the development of more sustainable synthetic methodology. In her spare time Sarah enjoys swimming and the odd friendly game of football.
