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 disorder, whilst enjoying the best music the 80s has to offer. When not advancing the boundaries of science, Dave enjoys weight-training, making music and working on pet programming projects.
