Our teaching and research advances the frontiers of the chemical and physical sciences to solve real-world challenges.

We specialise in research covering diverse topics, including:

  • studies of particles, fields and radiation and their interaction with matter
  • the design, synthesis, characterisation and study of the properties of molecules and materials
  • the implementation of these molecules and materials in various applications.

Our outcomes have included finding cheaper and efficient materials for storing renewable energy, and determining the elasticity of crystals down to the atomic level.
