Current Research

My current role is to assist and collaborate with researchers in the School of Chemistry with their work requiring single crystal and powder crystalline X-ray diffraction methods. My personal interest is in the self-assembly of metallo-supramolecular coordination molecules and materials.

Past Research

I have previously worked in the reserch groups of Prof. Michael D. Ward (Sheffield and Warwick), Prof. Neil R. Champness (Nottingham), Prof. Martin Schröder (Nottingham) and Prof. Alexander J. Blake (Nottingham).
