I teach inorganic chemistry to MChem students and I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
When I am not teaching, I undertake research involving the synthesis of cyanide-bridged mixed-valence complexes and the investigation of their electronic structure by nuclear and electron magnetic resonance.
