Rebecca read Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge and graduated in 2018 with a first class MSci degree specialising in Materials Science. During the later years of her degree she studied a range of topics including semiconductors, magnetic and superconducting materials, energy harvesting devices, nickel based superalloys, thermally functional materials, and biomedical materials, with her masters project working within the Cambridge Centre for Medical Materials tailoring the synthesis of poly(glycerol sebacate) to optimise its biodegradation kinetics and mechanical properties for use in urinary catheters.
During her time at university she carried out a summer research placement at École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne investigating the hydrophobicity of mixed-ligand self-assembled monolayers and undertook a course in nanoscience at the University of Tokyo.
Rebecca joined the Engineering department at Dehns in 2018 as a Technical Assistant.
