Welcome to the Gregory Research Group!

Our interests lie in the synthesis, structure and physical properties of inorganic solids.

The underlying theme in our approach is to identify and modify materials on the basis of their atomic or ionic arrangements. To achieve this in often exotic systems of materials, requires use of original and unusual synthetic methodology.
We are primarily concerned with investigating non-oxide systems where new structure types and bonding arrangements lead to unexpected and exciting properties.

Our aims are to discover new materials with potentially useful physical properties, particularly with projected applications in electronics, information technology and sustainable energy.
