Personal profile


Lisa graduated from the School of Chemistry at the University of Birmingham with a BSc (Hons) in Chemistry with French, which included a placement year in a research laboratory at Bordeaux University, France. This was followed by a PhD under the supervision of Prof. Colin Greaves at Birmingham with a thesis entitled "Structural and Magnetic Characterisation of Manganese containing Perovskite-related Materials" (2002).

She then carried out postdoctoral research at Caen University in France and then returned to the U.K to the Department of Engineering Materials at Sheffield University in 2004. In October 2005, she took up a position as a Lecturer at the University of Huddersfield, where she is involved mainly in the teaching of Inorganic and Physical Chemistry.

Lisa's research interests lie in Solid-state Inorganic Chemistry and Crystallography, principally involving the study of transition-metal oxides derived from the Perovskite structure.

Research Expertise and Interests

  • The synthesis and structural characterisation of functional metal oxide materials
  • The evolution of crystal structure of layered perovskites as a function of composition and temperature
