An only half joking illustration of the toll a PhD takes :)

Marie Skłodowska-Curie - BIENVENÜE Fellow

I am a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Bienvenue Fellow at Université de Rennes 1. Working in the laboratory of Prof. Frédéric Barrière, my research focuses on the development of biogenic transition metal electrocatalysts using biofilms of metal-sequestering bacteria. I previously worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for BioNano Interactions (CBNI) in the School of Chemistry, University College Dublin and as a postdoc and lecturer in Trinity College Dublin where I completed my PhD in physical chemistry with a focus on electrochemical and spectroscopic characterisation of nitrogenated carbon materials. I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry at Trinity in 2014, when I graduated at the top of my class.
