  2. PhD in Chemistry

Courses run by the Centre for Scientific Computing and the Department of Chemistry (with possible MPhil/PhD projects offered in my group in the chemistry department):

I am also a member of the SynTech Centre for Doctoral Training and can accept PhD students through this route as well.
