Sandy Kilpatrick joined the O’Hare Group in 2015 as a Postdoctoral Research Associate, working on solid supports for slurry-phase ethylene polymerisation in partnership with SCG Chemicals. Sandy held the R.J.P. Williams Junior Research Fellowship at Wadham College from 2015-2018, working on multi-decker zirconium sandwich complexes and surface organometallic chemistry.
In 2018 he moved to the Humboldt University of Berlin as a Bayer-Humboldt Research Fellow, investigating low-valent nickel complexes for small molecule activation.
In 2020, Sandy launched his independent career as a Lecturer in Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Leicester. His current activities are focused on the synthesis and reactivity of multimetallic transition metal complexes inspired by CO2-fixing enzymes.
