Biography

Dr Kyle Galloway obtained his M.Sci. in Chemistry at the University of Glasgow in July 2005. His studies continued at Glasgow with the award of a prestigious Carnegie Scholarship to pursue research that was started during an undergraduate project, and he was also awarded the Robertson Medal for the most outstanding application of the year. The research investigated "New Routes to Single Molecule Magnets" under the supervision of Dr Mark Murrie and Dr Robert Peacock, with particular interest in the effect of molecular structure on magnetic properties and the role of the counterion in self assembly reaction conditions. Dr Galloway was awarded his Ph.D. in July 2009 and then moved to the University of Nottingham as a Teaching Fellow in Inorganic Chemistry. In 2015 he was promoted to Assistant Professor of Chemistry Education. Dr Galloway has won the Lord Dearing Award for his outstanding contribution to the development of teaching and student learning, which was presented in July 2015.

Teaching Summary

Dr Galloway is actively involved in chemistry education research and has presented findings at national and international conferences. Current research areas include:

  • Development of effective synoptic activities using online resources and peer-learning
  • Investigation of the perceived value of degree skills by chemistry undergraduates

In addition, Dr Galloway is involved in outreach activities to engage with schools and raise awareness of chemistry and science. He is interested in the school to university transition and also in developing student career skills in order to enhance employability after graduation.
