Laura Wildsmith, PhD CChem MRSC
Environmental Team Leader
I joined Enviresearch in March 2019 as the Environmental Team Leader. I am responsible for overseeing the Environmental Team project work and I am the point of contact for clients requesting work in the areas of environmental fate and ecotoxicology. My aim is to ensure the safe use of products while safeguarding the environment.
I have a BSc in Chemistry and PhD in Physical Chemistry from Newcastle University. Previous to my role at Enviresearch I spent ten years working as a Physical Chemist in the Physical Chemistry Group at Syngenta looking at the properties of plant protection research compounds to strike the balance between bioavailability and registrability.
Outside of work I spend my time running around after my two young boys. I enjoy watching football – both toddler and NUFC (which are very similar in some respects). When I have the time, I enjoy figure skating, reading, dancing and knitting/crocheting. I also have a keen interest in wildlife and enjoy going on whale watching trips.
