Until recently I held two positions: an EPSRC Doctoral Prize Fellow at the University of Sheffield; and a MUST Theory Fellowship, at the University of Newcastle.

In Sheffield, I worked jointly between the groups of Julia Weinstein and Anthony Meijer, looking at the dynamics of controllable electron transfer. In Newcastle, I worked in the group of Tom Penfold, where I am simulating X-ray spectroscopies to understand femtosecond timescale dynamics in zinc oxide and myoglobin, in collaboration with the group of Majed Chergui.

My main research interests are in the vibrational and electronic structure of transition metal complexes and the mechanisms by which perturbations can influence the dynamics of excited state molecules. I enjoy collaborating extensively with experimental chemists, especially spectroscopists. I am also interested in non-adiabaticity and the breakdown of the Born-Oppenheimer approximation.

A short version of my CV is available here.
