Rebecca’s PhD research has helped to develop more robust sensors for uses such as monitoring dopamine in the brain. Her work investigated how nanoscale sensors interacted with the material they were designed to sense. Rebecca now plans to pivot into neuroscience to design molecular recognition tools for understanding and ultimately treating Alzheimer’s Disease.
