Dr Christopher J. Kingsbury

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

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. Much of this work involved non-standard crystallography experiments and some neat results.

My current research involves crystallographic and statistical analysis of macrocycles and chelates in the Senge group at Trinity College Dublin. Many of the tools, NSD and SCSD have the potential for immense impact in the rational design of materials.

In between these posts, I built a tiny house in Fiordland, New Zealand.
