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. My current research involves crystallographic and statistical analysis of macrocycles, chelates and pharmacophores with Mathias Senge at Trinity College Dublin. I develop tools, like NSD and SCSD, that have the potential for immense impact in the rational design of materials.

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.

I'll be beginning work with the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre in 2023. I've also built a tiny house in Fiordland, New Zealand.
