Dr Sabrina Touchet

Dr Ewa Nowicka

Dr Sabrina Touchet is a research associate working under the supervision of Professor R. K. Allemann, on a BBSRC-funded project entitled "Design of bioactive sesquiterpene-based chemical signals with enhanced stability" in collaboration with Rothamsted Reasearch.

During her PhD, her research was focus on the development of news routes for the synthesis of alpha-aminoboronique acids and boropeptides.

Her current research focuses on the chemoenzymatic preparation of sesquiterpene analogues and the understanding of sesquiterpene synthases.


PhD in organic synthesis at University of Rennes 1 (France) under the supervisor of Dr. François Carreaux and Dr. Bertrand Carboni.
Master degree of molecular organic chemistry at University of Rennes 1 (France).
Chemical Engineering degree from E.N.S.C.R. (Ecole Nationale Superieure de Chimie de Rennes – France).
