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.
Dan is an undergraduate masters student at King's College London from Sussex (UK). He joined the lab in October 2020 and is currently working on the synthesis of uranium-based bi-metallic complexes for the multi-electron activation of small molecules. Dan enjoys sport, music, bucket chemistry and wearing trackies to formal events.
Heidi is an undergraduate masters student at King's College London from the Isle of Wight (UK), and joined the lab in October 2020. She is currently working on the preparation of strained metallocyclic species as monomers for ring-opening polymerisation.
