Tamsin Bell

Tamsin completed her Masters in Chemistry (MSci) in 2012 and during her degree she studied in Montpellier in France for a year. Tamsin’s research interests are within the field of catalysis. At the end of her year in France, she did a 2 month project synthesising Pt-Sn catalysts for the dehydrogenation of kerosene.  In her final year research project, she used high accuracy computational methods to examine the mechanism of oxidative addition in cross-coupling reactions.  Tamsin enjoys sports, scuba diving and travelling.
