Dr  Chrissie  Carter

Chrissie joined the group in 1999, following obtaining an MChem degree from Leeds.  She investigated the use of chiral anions to control the asymmetric reactions of cations,and obtained her PhD in 2002.  Chrissie was supported by an EPSRC project studentship and Syngenta.  Following her PhD, Chrissie joined Thieme as an associate editor on "Science of Synthesis".
