PhD Students

Patrick Kimber

Patrick obtained his MChem with 1st class honours from the University of Sheffield in June 2019. His masters project, supervised by Dr Natalia Martsinovich, aimed to elucidate the molecular structure of the self-assembled network of hexaaminotriphenylene (HATP) on the Ag(111) surface using density functional theory calculations.

Project: Unravelling the electronic structure properties of functional molecules.


Master’s Students

Hamid Matari

Hamid obtained a Bachelors degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences from the University of Benghazi, Benghazi, Libya in 2012, where he was then appointed as a teaching assistant in the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry in 2013 and worked there until he was awarded the Chevening Scholarship from the UK government in 2019 to take his Masters degree at Loughborough University

Project: Computational modelling of the synthesis of the antibiotic basidalin.
