I cover all aspects of the Physical Chemistry component of Oxford's four year MChem degree
The primary focus of work in my group is on the construction, development and application of relatively simple potential models.
The use of such models allows a wide range of systems, with potentially unique properties, to be accessed.
For example, present research in progress includes the study of the formation of low-dimensional crystal structures,
network-forming liquids and glasses, the extension of known phase diagrams, polyamorphism and
