Nuclear magnetic resonance is unparalleled in its ability to provide atomic level detailed information about molecular structure and dynamics. My research interests are centered around the applications of sensitivity enhancement using hyperpolarisation and the development of NMR methods to provide detail at atomic-level resolution about chemical and biological reactions.  

I also manage the Chemistry Department NMR Facility, consisting of three instruments: a 400 MHz spectrometer for multinuclear studies; a 500 MHz machine for routine organic structure determination and a 600 MHz instrument for research use.
