Personal profile

Research interests

Research group website.

My research primarily focusses on understanding self-assembly processes in ordered materials, and rationalising experimental trends in ordered systems using computational methods. A recent project has yielded novel insights into the structure of ferroelectric liquid crystals, specifically in the nature of the structural change at the SmC - SmA phase transition.

Additional research has also involved calculations to rationalise trends in reaction kinetics of novel bioorthogonal reagents in collaboration with Dr Valery Kozhevnikov, and calculating binding properties of ligands designed for actinide extraction in collaboration with Dr Frank Lewis.

See "Key Publications" below for further details.
