Welcome to my research pages! I am a lecturer at the newly re-opened Department of Chemistry at Lancaster University, developing a research programme in Supramolecular Chemistry.
My primary research interests are in the investigation of Host-Guest Recognition and Self-Assembly. I am looking to build upon the knowledge and expertise I have gained through the study of interlocked molecules and chiral lanthanide complexes, to prepare molecules, complexes or supramolecular assemblies that may act as ever more useful receptors for a variety of ionic and molecular guests.

December 2018: Charlie submits his PhD thesis for examination. Nick (with Dr Nick Fletcher) hosts the 2018 RSC Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry Interest Group meeting – MASC2018 – at Lancaster University, with over 150 delegates attending.
November 2018: Nick presents a talk to the Department of Chemistry at the University of Lincoln.
October 2018: New academic year starts with MSci student Matt joining Nick to start his CHEM400 project.
