Kate Sanders is an NanoDTC PhD candidate (c. 2016) working on hierarchically structured carbon nanomaterials with a focus on catalysis and water purification applications. Her PhD is is co-supervised by Dr Laura Torrente (Catalysis and Process Integration group). During her MRes year she completed rotation projects in the mechanical properties of CNT films, the synthesis of double perovskite nanocrystals and the organic synthesis of a drug delivery complex. Prior to this, Kate graduated from University College London in 2016 with an MSci in Chemistry, working on biomimetic polymer-clay nanocomposites for her Masters project. She is a member of Wolfson College.
