Rebecca graduated from the University of Oxford in 2017 with a first class Master’s degree in Chemistry. During her time at Oxford, Rebecca earned a scholarship at Corpus Christi College for her academic achievements and was awarded a thesis prize in Inorganic Chemistry. For her final year project she investigated the potential use of novel Mn(II) and Gd(III) ion porphyrin compounds in determining distance distributions using Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) and techniques such as Relaxation Induced Dipolar Modulation Enhancement (RIDME) and Chirp Induced Dipolar Modulation Enhancement (CIDME).
In addition, she has completed several summer research projects working on the synthesis of fluorescent oligonucleotides and the design of a new undergraduate teaching experiment titled ‘Molecular Vibrations’.
Rebecca is fluent in Danish and by association can communicate well in Norwegian and Swedish. She loves travelling and has spent extended periods of time in India, Nepal and Tanzania. While at Oxford, she was a choral bursar for her college choir and has a wide range of hobbies including books, baking and boxing.
