Miss Emma J. McKinley (2010-2011)

Emma’s research is focussed on developing a better understanding of the solid state.  She is using a three pronged attack, studying the crystallisation of chalcones; examining the effect of temperature on a material that undergoes a phase transition, and investigating the World’s Favourite Space Group, P21/c.  She is using a wide range of … Read the rest

Mr. Jeremy P. Law (2010-2011)

Jeremy’s research revolves around using various techniques (NMR, crystallography and DFT calculations) to provide information about exactly where hydrogen atoms are located in crystal structures, and exploring the merits and shortcomings of the various techniques for this purpose. When he isn’t trying to persuade a supercomputer to calculate what he wants, he enjoys playing the … Read the rest

Mr. N. David Brown (2008-2011)

As part of Age Concern, an EPSRC-funded exploration into the world of modern crystallography, Dave is developing a fast, live, configurable chemical structure matching algorithm to identify discrepancies between an expected structure and a real crystallographic structure. Implemented in his software “matchbOx”, Dave is augmenting the software capabilities to automatically handle certain cases of crystal … Read the rest
