Dan Giernalczyk


Dan graduated from the University of Bristol in 2016 with an MSci in Chemistry, having spent his final year project supervised by Prof. V K Aggarwal on the stereocontrolled synthesis of saturated N-heterocycles with alkyl potassium trifluoroborate salts. His third year was spent on industrial placement at Schlumberger, Cambridge, where he worked on the rheological properties of hydrolysed polyacrylamides (HPAMs) for use in enhanced oil recovery.
