DISPEL, TOCSY, multidimensional NMR

I have obtained my Honour Bachelor of Science at University of Toronto, Canada in Biochemistry and Environmental Science double major with Biology minor in 2019 summer. During my undergraduate study, I helped out writing the lab manuals for upper year chemistry courses, hosted seminars for laboratory courses under Dr Lana Mikhaylichenko and for Arduino Robot coding and 3D printing with Dr Ronald Soong, and did internship at National Thai Red Cross and at EnerGaia , both in Bangkok, Thailand.

I started off as a volunteer research assistant in Andre Simpson's lab in 2017. By 2019, I was promoted to senior undergraduate researcher and within the lab, I have written two theses and helped out publishing papers.
- The implementation and the use of the ultra-fast 2D NMR spectroscopy
- The development of low-field NMR spectroscopy

Now I am a candidate for a Master in Science, Research by Chemistry 2020 at the University of Manchester. My research entitled "Development of novel NMR techniques for mixture analysis" will be supervised by Professor Gareth Morris and Professor Mathias Nilsson.
