Dr Beatrice S. L. Collins 

Royal Society University Research Fellow

Beatrice was born in 1986 and grew up in the West Country in a village just outside Bristol. She studied Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge and was awarded an MSci (first class) in 2009. She then stayed at Cambridge to undertake PhD studies under the supervision of Professor Matthew Gaunt in the field of transition metal catalysis. In 2014 Beatrice moved to the University of Groningen in the Netherlands, where she spent two years undertaking postdoctoral research with Professor Ben Feringa in the field of molecular switches and motors. In 2016 she moved back to the UK to take up a postdoctoral research position in the group of Professor Varinder Aggarwal FRS at the University of Bristol. In 2018 Beatrice was awarded a Royal Society University Research Fellowship to establish her own independent career and has since founded her own research group at the University of Bristol.
