My name is Megan Thompson, and I’m a PhD student in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Bath.
In my research, I use computer simulations to model the formation of porous crystals which will be loaded with medication and used for targeted drug delivery in chemotherapy patients.
I use aspects of Chemistry that you will be familiar with from your A level work on bonding and structure to predict the conditions needed to make a desired crystal by combining the atomic and energetic structures.
