Frances Roberts


I completed my Intergrated Masters in Chemistry at the University of Leeds, where I focused my Master's project on Velocity Map Imaging and UV/VIS Spectroscopy of S-Nitrosothiol radicals.

I am currently a PhD student in Julia Lehman's Group at the University of Leeds since October 2018. My PhD project is centred on using a Femtosecond Frequency Comb laser to probe the reaction kinetics and IR spectra of Methylmercapto radicals, which are relevant to atmospheric, biological and interstellar processes.
