Biography

I have been a Tutor in Chemistry at St Edmund Hall since 1995, prior to which I was a Lecturer in Physical Chemistry at the University of Nottingham. My research has touched on many different aspects of theoretical chemistry, ranging from predicting the structures and properties of the fullerenes to explaining the detailed quantum state-resolved results of modern chemical reaction dynamics experiments. Most recently, I have become interested in using path integral methods to shed light on the effect of thermal quantum fluctuations in liquids. Believe it or not, the thing I would most like to understand at the moment is exactly what is happening in a glass of water. My undergraduate and visiting student teaching at St Edmund Hall covers essentially all aspects of physical and theoretical chemistry.
