Keynote Speakers

Dr. Rachel O'Reilly (Warwick University) - "Using metals and polymers for catalysis and self-assembly"
Dr Rachel O’Reilly is currently an EPSRC career acceleration fellow and associate professor in the Chemistry Department at the University of Warwick. She graduated from the University of Cambridge in 1999 and went on to complete her PhD at Imperial College, London in 2003 under the supervision of Professor Vernon C. Gibson. In 2003 she moved to the US to work on the functionalisation of polymeric nanoparticles using ‘Click’ chemistry, at the IBM Almaden research center in San Jose California and Washington University in Saint Louis, Missouri, under the joint direction of Professors Craig J. Hawker and Karen L. Wooley. In 2004 she was awarded a research fellowship from the Royal Commission for the Exhibition for 1851 and moved back to the UK in 2005. At this time she took up a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship in the Chemistry Department at the University of Cambridge and in 2009 she moved to take up her current position at Warwick. Her current research focuses on bridging the interface between creative synthetic, polymer and catalysis chemistry, to allow for the development of materials that are of significant importance in medical, materials and nanoscience applications.


Prof. Claire Carmalt (University College London) - "Aerosol-assisted chemical vapor deposition of gallium and indium oxide: from precursor synthesis to gas sensors"
Claire Carmalt graduated from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne with a first-class honours degree in chemistry in 1992. She remained at Newcastle to do her PhD with Dr Nick Norman on 'Synthetic and structural studies involving the heavier elements of groups 13 and 15'. She then spent just over two years as a postdoctoral fellow at the Science and Technology Center, University of Texas at Austin under the supervision of Professors Alan Cowley FRS and Mike White. Her postdoctoral work, which involved the synthesis of novel precursors for thin film growth, stimulated her interest in materials chemistry. In 1997, she was awarded a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship and she moved to University College London. She started a lectureship at UCL in 2001 and was promoted to senior lecturer in 2002, Reader in 2004 and Professor in 2009. She was awarded the RSC 2000 Meldola Medal and Prize for her work in materials chemistry. Her group's research is now based around the application of organometallic chemistry to problems in materials deposition, most notably in connection with the development of "designed" molecular precursors targeted for thin film growth by chemical vapour deposition (CVD).


Prof. Eric McInnes (Manchester University)"EPR spectroscopy as a probe of electronic structure of molecular magnets"
Professor and Head of Inorganic Chemistry at The University of Manchester, and Co-Director of the EPSRC National EPR Facility and Service. Research interests include the chemistry and physics of paramagnetic transition ion clusters. EPR spectroscopy and complementary methods such as inelastic neutron scattering are used extensively to probe the spin structure and dynamics in such materials and their potential exploitation in areas as diverse as magnetic refrigeration and quantum information processing.
