Ms Catherine Simpson

BSc (Materials), Hons (Chemistry)
PhD Candidate

Catherine completed a Bachelor of Science in Materials (2013) and First-class Honours in Chemistry (2014) at the University of Wollongong (UOW). During her Honours project she studied triplet-triplet annihilation upconversion for dye-sensitised solar cells, supervised by Dr. Andrew Nattestad (ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science, Intelligent Polymer Research Institute, UOW) and A/Prof. Adam Trevitt (School of Chemistry, UOW). Catherine is a PhD candidate under the supervision of Professor Michelle Coote in the Computer Aided Chemical Design Group at RSC. She is currently using computational methods to study the effects of electric fields on chemical reactions.
