Will graduated with an MChem in Chemistry from the University of Bath in 2011, where he studied the asymmetric synthesis of chiral sugars for the use in directed evolution of a thermostable aldolase as his final year project. Previously he also worked as a medicinal research chemist on a professional placement, undertaking research for Takeda Cambridge Pharmaceutical Ltd in 2009. Outside of academia, he enjoys reading, playing squash and socializing with friends.
