Paul Scattergood is a synthetic inorganic chemist with a background and strong interest in the photophysical study of transition metal complexes. He obtained his MChem degree from the University of Sheffield (2010), before undertaking doctoral studies (PhD, Sheffield, 2014) with Prof Julia Weinstein on photo-induced electron transfer in Pt(II) complexes and the excited-state Infra-Red controlled switching of photo-induced electron transfer outcomes. He moved to the University of Huddersfield in 2014, taking up a Post-Doctoral Research Assistant role with Prof Paul Elliott, investigating the photophysical and photochemical properties of triazole-containing complexes of Ru(II), Os(II) and Ir(III). Moving to a Research Fellow position in 2018, Paul is now embarking upon research into the photophysical properties of Earth-abundant first-row transition metal complexes.
