Mechanistic Analysis of Ruthenium catalysed metathesis reactions


Katie graduated from the University of Edinburgh with an MChem degree in 2019. She completed her final year masters project in the Lloyd-Jones group utilising physical organic techniques to probe organic mechanisms of TMSCF3.

During her undergraudate degree she also spent a year in industry at AstraZeneca in Macclesfield where she worked on developing novel copper catalysed reactions.

Katie enjoys climbing munros, running and camping during her spare time. As well as being an avid Scotland and Edinburgh Rugby fan, she also supports the Pittsburgh Steelers and English cricket.
