PhD 2016 (QUB)
Corina graduated with a master’s degree in Chemical Engineering (MEng) from Queen’s University Belfast in July 2013. During her undergraduate degree she participated on the Business Education Initiative programme, this involved spending a year in America studying Business and gaining a diploma from Lees McCrae College, Banner Elk, North Carolina. Corina’s masters project involved the synthesis and characterisation of Ionic Liquids under the supervision of Dr. Johan Jacquemin which led to her interest in pursuing a PhD in the field. Corina started working with Prof. Chris Hardacre in July 2013 on the development of Novel Ionic liquids for Carbon Capture.
Since completing her PhD in 2016, Corina is working as a Chemical Engineer for Almac.
