Simon BoothroydPhD student
I graduated from Lancaster University with a 1st Class BSc Hons in Natural Sciences, studying the themes of Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry and was awarded the Natural Sciences class prize.
I am now continuing my studies at Lancaster University as a PhD student under the supervision of Prof. Jamshed Anwar and Dr. Andy Kerridge with funding from both AstraZeneca and the EPSRC.
My research aims to gain a fundamental understanding of how the interactions between atoms and molecules determines the behaviour of a system. Areas of interest range from the aggregation and self-assembly of supramolecular structures, to the phase transitions and structures of crystalline materials.
My current research aims to gain insight into the nucleation and growth of multi-component crystals. In particular, elucidating the driving force behind solvate and hydrate formation, understanding the compatibility of co-formers in co-crystals and studying the stability of channel hydrates.
