Nessa the Chemist


Nessa Carson: About

Nessa Carson is a professional synthetic organic chemist working with laboratory automation (robots) to perform high-throughput experimentation in the private sector in south east England.

To complement my organic chemistry experience, I like to get involved with other science-related projects. I wrote this website to teach myself CSS and JavaScript, and followed up by learning about Python and R. The site's purpose is as a repository for content I think is useful, mostly to scientists. I keep a database of upcoming conferences in organic chemistry, and a handy chemical vendor search. Luigi da Via and I curate a Peeriodicals overlay journal, High-Throughput Automation in R&D. I also host two Twitterbots: @ukchemjobs, which keeps an eye on the UK chemistry job market, and @ChemPostdocBot, which shares chemistry postdoc jobs around the world. For fun, you can also check out all the elements I've ever used in my time as a chemist (and make your own interactive checklist) here. I also write poetry.
