Biography

Rachel O'Reilly is a professor of Polymer Science in the Chemistry Department at the University of Warwick. She graduated from the University of Cambridge in 1999 and went on to complete her PhD at Imperial College, London in 2003 with Professor Vernon C Gibson in organometallic chemistry. She then moved to the US to work under the joint direction of Professors Craig J Hawker and Karen L Wooley in the area of polymer synthesis and self-assembly.

In 2004 she was awarded a research fellowship from the Royal Commission for the Exhibition for 1851 and in 2005 she took up a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship at the University of Cambridge. In 2009 she moved to her current position at Warwick. Her research focuses on bridging the interface between creative synthetic, polymer and catalysis chemistry, to allow for the development of materials that are of significant importance in medical, materials and nanoscience applications.
