During this time, she developed a keen interest in medicinal chemistry and early-phase drug development. In 2016, she won the University’s Carnelly Prize for a proficiency in chemistry, along with the Graham Smith Prize for achieving the highest grades in her degree stream. Her dissertation was focused on synthesising covalent fragments for use in fragment-based drug discovery.
