York Chemistry PhD student features in the RSC 175 Faces of Chemistry

 175 faces Babatunde

Chemistry PhD student, Babatunde (Tunde) Okesola, has also recently been named as one of the RSC's 175 Faces of Chemistry.

Tunde joined the Department in February 2012 to carry out an MSc by research with Professor Dave Smith. Following a successful first year, with the support of a Wild Fund Scholarship, Tunde transfered into the second year of a PhD.

Working with Dave on supramolecular hydrogel, he aims to harness the power of supramolecular interactions to assemble novel small molecules into hydrogels.

For his research, he has been awarded the Kathleen Mary Scott prize by the University of York and in 2013 recognised as a ‘Human of York.’ His works have also been published in reputable journals.
