Rebecca Musgrave

Rebecca is from London (UK), and obtained her MChem degree in 2012 from the University of Oxford, working for Prof. Jose Goicoechea during her final year project on low-valent organometallics. She then undertook doctoral work on the synthesis, characterisation and application of metallocene-based polymers at Bristol University with Prof. Ian Manners. After this she won a Marie Curie Global Fellowship to work jointly with Prof. Ted Betley (Harvard University) and Dr. Rodolphe Clérac (CNRS) on transition metal clusters and their magnetic properties. She joined the Department of Chemistry at King's College London as a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Inorganic Chemistry in July 2020.

Benedict Thompson

Benedict is a 1st year PhD student working on the polymerisation of organometallic complexes. He completed a BSc in chemistry at the University of Warwick in 2020, including a year in industry researching novel water-borne polymer technologies for AkzoNobel Paints and Coatings. This was followed by an MRes at the University of York on the synthesis and characterisation of quadruply-bonded dimolybdenum paddlewheel complexes, before joining the Musgrave group in February 2022.

Lilian Karim

Lilian is fourth-year Chemistry MSci student at King’s College London working on the synthesis of heterobimetallic complexes. Previously, she completed a King’s Undergraduate Fellowship Research with Dr. James Harvey. Along with Chemistry, she enjoys baking, music, and eating all types of food..

Carolina Candia

Carolina is a PhD student at the University of Santiago, Chile in the group of Prof. Jorge Pavez. She is currently a visiting student at King's, working on surface functionalisation for electrocatalysis between our lab and the Biomolecular Electronics Lab.
