My research

My current research uses computational modelling to try to understand liquids. At present  I am modelling the behaviour of ionic liquids near electrodes in collaboration with scientists in Spain, Estonia and the UK

My journey

Originally I was an NMR spectroscopist measuring chemical shifts and coupling constants of simple molecules, but I made the transition to a theorist and then a computational chemist partly as my interests changed and partly because it was easier to combine theory and computational work with family timetables. My most important asset has been a supportive husband who respects my abilities
