Kirsten’s research is focused on several areas that will establish a fundamental understanding of modulation in molecular materials e.g. their formation and properties. This knowledge can be put to immediate use in Crystal Engineering, and will also affect research in pharmaceuticals, developments in molecular modelling and crystal packing predictions.
Pascal is a senior post-doctoral researcher working on refinement and analysis of diffraction from very short lived excited state chemical species. He obtained a PhD with Dr Mark Murrie at Glasgow University studying the effects of pressure on single molecular magnets, and has since held posts at Utrecht University and University of Nancy working on … Read the rest
Away from the lab Lewis enjoys sports including football, rugby, and American football, as well as the odd game of FIFA.
He was inspired to join the group after attending the Structural Methods Options … Read the rest
James’ favourite undergraduate course was Prof Ritchie’s Quantum Mechanics stuff, and his preferred exchange correlation functional is the classic PBE.
Kiaora’s research project is to determine the structures of molecules which are liquids at room temperature or otherwise hard-to-crystallize using crystalline host frameworks and/or low temperature in-situ crystallization techniques.
While away from the lab Kiaora indulges in the incompatible sports of baking and swimming.
Her favourite space group is P21/c and … Read the rest
To unwind after a hard day of Python algorithms he plays tennis and badminton, and enjoys swimming. He prefers the non-standard setting of space group 14, P21/n, and at the time of writing … Read the rest
