Projects per year
Matthew obtained his MCHEM degree from the University of Liverpool in 2013. He went on to do a PhD at Liverpool under the direction of Professor Dave Adams and Dr Jon Iggo, developing novel Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) techniques to study self-assembled peptide gel materials. He won the 2017 Ronald Belcher Award from the Royal Society of Chemistry for his PhD research. He also won a Research Fellowship from the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 to work with Professor Yaroslav Khimyak at the School of Pharmacy at UEA. Matthew’s particular area of expertise lies in the development of NMR imaging methodologies to study processes taking place along chemical gradients inside gels. He is also interested in techniques for the high-throughput measurement of the molecular properties of pharmaceuticals.
In August 2020, Matthew was awarded a prestigious UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship to develop NMR imaging tools for the faster development of new drugs and materials.
