Bob studied at Durham University for his MChem (2009) and PhD (2013, with Prof. Andrew Beeby). He then held Alexander von Humboldt [Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg with Prof. Todd Marder] and Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 [University of Oxford with Prof. Stephen Faulkner] Fellowships.
In 2018 he joined the University of Strathclyde as a Chancellor's Fellow and Lecturer in Chemistry.
We are interested in the design, synthesis, photophysics, and applications of conjugated materials with uses ranging from fluorescent dyes in super-resolution microscopy to photosensitizers for phototherapy. See Research Interests tab for further details.
Bob is Secretary of the RSC Photophysics and Photochemistry Group and member of the SCI Young Chemists' Panel and the RSC Glasgow and West of Scotland Local Section Committees.
