I graduated with a first class degree in Natural Sciences (2000) and a PhD in Condensed Matter Theory (2004), both from the University of Cambridge. Before joining Imperial College London in 2007 I was a Junior Research Fellow in Cambridge and a post-doctoral research associate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
I’m the Director of the Thomas Young Centre at Imperial, the London Centre for Theory and Simulation of Materials and Molecules; I sit on the Management Board of the Materials and Molecular Modelling Hub, which hosts the UK’s dedicated national Tier-2 HPC facilities (first Thomas and currently Young) for materials and molecular modelling; and I’m a Trustee of Psi-k, a Europe-based, worldwide network of researchers working on the advancement of first-principles computational materials science.
In my spare time I enjoy tennis, hiking and learning Russian.
