Since 2007 I have been Stipendiary Lecturer in Inorganic Chemistry at Brasenose, St Anne’s, Oriel, St Hilda’s, Somerville colleges and St Edmund Hall.
I cover all aspects of the Inorganic Chemistry undergraduate course at Oxford.
My research interests include functional materials for energy storage and energy conversion, electronic materials, sustainable energy, hydrogen economy, carbon dioxide conversion and utilisation.
