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

Dylan Morgan

Dylan is currently in his final year of his MChem degree at Loughborough University, undertaking a project on visualising aromaticity in macrocycles. He resides in Wales out of term time and enjoys his free time playing guitar and mountain biking
