Dr Christopher J. Kingsbury

Postdoctoral Researcher; Crystallography
Ph.D.(Chem.), M.Sc.(Chem.), B.Sc.

I'm Chris, a chemist focusing on crystal structure analysis.

I gained my Ph.D. with Prof. Brendan Abrahams and Prof. Richard Robson FRS at the University of Melbourne in Australia, in 2018, in the synthesis and crystallography of porous coordination polymer (MOF) materials undergoing dynamic processes.

My postdoctoral research involved crystallographic and statistical analysis of macrocycles, chelates and pharmacophores with Mathias Senge at Trinity College Dublin. I've developed the NSD and SCSD analysis tools, available here.

I currently work at the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre since 2023, on programs for the analysis of crystal structures including Aromatics Analyser, and tools for catalysis, topology analysis and intermolecular contacts. Please get in touch if you'd like to collaborate.

I've also built a tiny house in Fiordland, New Zealand.
