Biography

I am a Royal Society University Research Fellow (2016-2021) in the School of Chemistry, University of Glasgow.

I obtained a PhD in supramolecular chemistry from the University of Edinburgh (2005-2009, with Prof. David A. Leigh, FRS) and subsequently undertook postdoctoral work at MIT with Prof. Daniel Nocera (2009-2010), conducting electrochemical and photochemical studies on models of cobalt oxy-hydroxide water-oxidising catalysts.

After returning to the UK, I joined the group of Prof. Lee Cronin at the University of Glasgow (Nov. 2010 - Sept. 2013), during which time I developed new systems for the overall electrolysis of water. From October 2013 to September 2016, I held a Kelvin Smith Fellowship at the University of Glasgow, which allowed me to establish my own independent research group focusing on electrochemistry and energy conversion.

I was elected to the Royal Society of Edinburgh's Young Academy of Scotland in August 2016, and I am currently the Chair of the RSC Electrochemistry Interest Group committee (having previously been the secretary of the same, 2017-2019). I was part of the organizing committee for the 2019 installment of the RSC Electrochemistry Group's flagship conference, "Electrochem".

I am also currently the secretary of the Glasgow and West of Scotland local section of the RSC, and heavily involved in public outreach through this. I have been on the editorial board of Nature Publishing Group's Scientific Reports since 2014 as an expert in electrochemistry.
