Name: James McManus
Job Title: Knowledge Research Scientist
I’m James and I joined the Science team at Lhasa in July 2018.
I completed my MChem degree at Newcastle University in 2013 and then moved to the University of Leeds where I worked on my PhD in Organic Chemistry (Multifunctional Catalysis for Sequential Reactions) with Prof. John Blacker in the Institute of Process Research and Development.
After graduating in 2017, I worked on three catalysis and process chemistry projects within the iPRD before starting at Lhasa.
At Lhasa, I am working on knowledge research for the Mirabilis project within the Science team.
Outside of work I enjoy playing snooker, training in Jiu Jitsu and doing home improvement projects.
