At present I divide my time equally between the Department and Selwyn College, where I am the Senior Tutor. In the Department my main role is as the Director of Teaching, having overall responsibility for the delivery of the undergraduate chemistry course. My own teaching is mainly in the area of introductory physical and theoretical chemistry e.g. thermodynamics, high-resolution spectroscopy, and applications of elementary group theory.
My research interests have been in the area of high-resolution nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, particularly in the development and application of new techniques. Some of our publications and associated software, as well as lecture notes from various NMR summer schools, are available on the group web server www-keeler.ch.cam.ac.uk .
Please note that at present I am not recruiting any post doctoral workers, PhD students or summer visitors.
I have authored three text books, two on general chemistry and one on NMR.
