Chemistry Measurement and Modelling Cluster

About our cluster

Our research is highly interdisciplinary, with a truly multidisciplinary cross-cut through the broad remit of Physical Sciences. We have outstanding experimental and computational facilities (£10M<), enabling our research output to continually push the current state-of-the-art. This is reflected in the impact of our work; from publications in top flight journals to links with major industries. Please browse our individual member websites for specific details.

Our research covers a broad range of topics under Physical and Theoretical Chemistry. The areas which our research impacts includes, but is by no means limited to: (1) predicting and designing materials for energy, healthcare and manufacturing; (2) instrument development and application to global research challenges including: Energy, Electronics, Chemicals, Healthcare, Information Technology and Pharmaceuticals/Biotechnology; and (3) development of sensors for biomedical and diagnostic applications.

We currently have 15 members. The member pages provides a brief description of their work, a contact email and a link to their website. A filter-tool enables users to link cluster members to research topic as well as global research challenge.
