Peyman was a Research Associate in our group. His expertise is in the combination of high-throughput molecular simulations and adsorption measurements for studying adsorption phenomena in advanced materials, in particular self-assembled porous crystals. Peyman is now a Lecturer in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Sheffield.
Tian obtained his PhD in the group. His research involved synthesising monolithic MOFs for gas storage and separation. Tian is also a co-founder of Immaterial, a spin-out from the group. Tian is now a postdoctoral reseacher working in the Multifunctional Nanomaterials group in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London.
Andi obtained his PhD in the group in 2018. His research interest were the identification of optimal nanoporous MOF structures for gas separation using molecular simulation, as part of the BP International Centre for Advanced Materials. He studied Engineering Science at St Edmund Hall, Oxford.
Claudia Orellana obtained her PhD in the group. Her work focused on using MOFs for drug delivery applications in order to reduce the side effects and to enhance the efficacy of therapeutic agents. The main aim of her research project was to study MOFs as efficient drug delivery systems compared to free drugs using in vitro experiments on cancer cell lines.
Salame (Sam) obtained his PhD in this group. His research is focused on the use of MOFs for targeted intracellular delivery of bioactive molecules. Prior to starting his PhD, Sam obtained his BEng in Chemical Engineering from the American University of Beirut, before pursuing the MPhil in Advanced Chemical Engineering course at CEB. In his spare time Sam enjoys travelling, music, playing the piano, cooking, and sports.
New synergies between magnetic hyperthermia and drug delivery for cancer therapy. Funded by the Cambridge Cancer Centre (CRUK), this project looked at the incorporation of magnetically heatable nanoparticles into porous metal-organic frameworks for triggerable therapeutic release.
David completed his PhD in Ireland in 2015 focusing on the use of porous materials for gas separations and carbon capture. David's research focused upon the scale-up and applications of monolithic metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) in chemical purification's, storage and catalysis.
Robin completed his PhD in South Korea, mainly focused on the structural investigation of MOFs that enhance the CO2 fixation reactions. His work was focused on the scale-up synthesis of monolithic metal organic framewroks in collaboration with the Immaterials Lab.
She completed her PhD in Barcelona in 2019 with special interest in developing synthetic pathways for scale-up production of metal–organic frameworks in green conditions. Her work mainly focused on large scale synthesis of monolithic metal-organic frameworks in collaboration with Immaterials Lab.
