Biography

Nicola holds EPSRC Open Fellowship and a Lord Kelvin Adam Smith Fellowship. The Bell Group studies the application of digital tools to inert atmosphere synthesis and catalysis and in collaboration with the nuclear industry will design methods for remote investigation of actinide behaviour. 

See our group website: www.BellGroupLabs.com for more info

Nicola is an expert in actinide science, having undertaken an EPSRC Doctoral Prize Fellowship in the lab of Prof. Polly Arnold at Edinburgh. Nicola has also gained expertise in catalysis, postdocing at the University of St Andrews with Prof. Allan Watson. Most recently Nicola has been a Senior Researcher in the Cronin Group investigating the use of automation in inorganic synthesis whilst also acting as Group coordinator overseeing PhD students and postdocs, managing collaborations and contributing to various outputs. 

Outside of the lab Nicola has a passion for education & student developement and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Nicola is also an advocate for the use of evidence in policy making and attended Westminster as part of the Voices of the Future program. In 2016 Nicola founded the ECECR conference giving postdocs a chance to present their work and career path in a supportive environment and in 2017 Nicola joined the SciFinder Future Leaders Program. 


Research interests

Nicola is an expert in organometallics and coordination chemistry and inert environment techniques particularly for the f-block metals. Nicola was the first to report the isolation of a thorium (bis)imido model compound of Thoria (ThO2) a species which is highly important in Nuclear wastes allowing important computational analysis (in collaboration w/Prof. Maron) of its behavour which confirmed theories about the structural & bonding nature of ThO2. 

Nicola also has an interest in catalysis and developed the Ionising Cross Coupling methodology for copper whereby new C-N bonds can be created with neutral cross coupling partners. Nicola demonstrated how inert atmosphere techniques were key to the exploitation of this new methodology. 

Nicola is now developing new automation tools to study the inorganic chemistry landscape, increasing throughput and safety.
