Qamreen obtained a Masters degree in Chemistry at the University of Warwick in 2012, where her research project “Clay-stabilised Emulsions for the Production of Flame-Retardant Intumescent Films” gave her a flavour for the research world.
After teaching Chemistry for a year at a sixth-form college, Qamreen applied for a PhD project in the dynamic UCL group Molecular Modelling and Materials Science. Having a keen interest in Computational Chemistry, the task of modelling ionic liquids for their affinity towards CO2 fit perfectly. Qamreen works on large-scale Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations to provide quantitative information on the stability, sorption and diffusion behaviour of different ionic liquid framework structures. Simulations will be run using codes AMBER and DL_POLY.
