Personal profile


I took up my current position in 2007. Prior to this I completed a PhD in Computational Solid State Chemistry with Prof SC Parker before undertaking postdoctoral research in Bath and in the Materials Science department in Cambridge, where I was part of a consortium modelling the interface of biological molecules with mineral surfaces.

In addition to teaching physical chemistry, I am actively involved in researching many aspects of solid state chemistry, particularly mineral surfaces, using computer modelling techniques as part of the Catalysis Research Centre in the Department of Chemical and Biological Sciences.
