David Brossault, Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, University of Cambridge

David is a PhD candidate at the Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology department. His research explores the design and optimisation of silica based composite materials doped with metal oxides for use in both environmental (e.g. water treatment) and biological (e.g. imaging and drug delivery) applications. Before his PhD, David obtained his BSc in Chemistry (2013) and a dual MSc in General and Formulation Chemistry (2017). He has developed research skills, adaptability and scientific interest through 2 years working in various industrial R&D departments, including Sanofi (United-Kingdom), Capsugel (France), BASF (Germany) and UCB Pharma (Belgium).
