Yusuf Hamied Department of Chemistry


I am a first-year PhD student working in the field of super-resolution microscopy under the supervision of Dr Steven Lee.

I obtained my integrated master's chemistry degree from the University of York in 2020 before arriving in Cambridge later that year. I completed my master's thesis under the supervision of Dr Martin Cockett in the field of physical chemistry and spectroscopy. It employed Resonance Enahnced Multiphoton Ionisation (REMPI) Spectroscopy and excited state electronic structure (and molecular orbital) calculations to probe the weak interactions between biologically relevent molecules with solvents containing oxygen and sulfur. Significant focus was placed on the design and fabrication of the REMPI apparatus.
