Panellist bio:

I am the Graduate Account Manager for the Semiconductor portfolio at A-Gas Electronic Materials, I started the role in August 2020 off the back on my master’s degree in chemistry. My previous experience includes a placement abroad in Belgium, I spent 12 months working in a project group engineering a flexible flat panel x-ray detector prototype. With my Chemistry academic background, I had a rounded platform to build the technical knowledge required for the role. I now support a large variety of customers from senior experienced professionals and more junior individuals who are working with our chemistry.
