Research Interests

Ultrafast spectroscopy of molecular materials, molecular magnetism, thin films, photoinitiated electron dynamics in carbon nanomaterials

Research Overview

Our aim is to understand how light can be used to probe, and eventually control, electrons in magnetic molecular materials. We study ultrafast photophysics of a range of large transition metal complexes with exchange-coupled electrons, ranging from single-molecule magnets to magnetic coordination polymers. Our goal is to explore ultrafast spin dynamics in molecules with several magnetic centres and we work closely with theoreticians and synthetic chemists.
