Ian McPherson

Hi! My name is Ian McPherson and I have just joined the electrochemistry group as a postdoc to work on understanding and controlling crystallisation at interfaces with Prof. Unwin.

I have come from Oxford where I received my MChem and DPhil, also staying on for a postdoc. My previous work has been based on understanding electrocatalysis – how electrode materials can influence useful electrochemical reactions, especially those involved in energy conversion. I developed an in situ infrared spectro-electrochemistry approach to study intermediates adsorbed on nanoparticles during catalysis, and built a molten salt reactor for the electrochemical conversion of nitrogen and hydrogen into ammonia.

Outside the lab I enjoy running, swimming and cycling, occasionally combining all three into a triathlon, but never too seriously!

 

I work in C111, come by for chat any time!

Ingrid Edwards

Hi! My name is Ingrid Edwards, and I just recently joined the structural biology group as a postdoc to study polyketide synthases with Associated Professor Lewandowski.

I have an international background, received my MSc Chemistry in Lyon (France). I gained experience in analytical chemistry and NMR throughout various industrial experiences, such as Pfizer (UK) or Merck (Switzerland). Then I moved to Brisbane (Australia) where I started working on protein and peptides and I recently graduated from the University of Queensland with a PhD in chemical biology, structural biology. During my PhD, I worked on antimicrobial peptides, studying their structure, function and mode of action to design new therapeutically valuable peptides.

Outside the lab I enjoy hiking, cycling, baking and travelling.

I work in mainly in Millburn House in F12 but you will always find me also in Chemical Biology facility. Come and stop for a chat any time!!
