Gemma Sends Herself to Coventry

MChem student Gemma Parker has graduated from the McGonigal Group and Durham University. After a well-earned break over the summer, she will move to the University of Warwick, Coventry, to study for a PhD in the Chaplin Group, where she will investigate agostic interactions in organometallic complexes. Good luck, Gemma!


Gemma had a run of success towards the end of the academic year, graduating with a first class honours degree and winning two poster prizes – one for the best MChem Project Poster in the Chemistry Department (the David Brinley Adams Prize) and the second at Durham University's 2016 Rising Stars Research Symposium. The photo below shows Gemma being awarded the David Brinley Adams Prize by the Head of Department, Prof Mark Wilson.
