Tom Robinson joined the group in October 2016. He received his PhD degree at the University of Bath in 2014, designing heterometallic polyyne complexes under the supervision of Prof. Paul Raithby and Dr Andrew Johnson. He then moved to the University of Oxford to take up a postdoctoral position in the group of Dr Jose Goicoechea, studying phosphorus chemistry. His research focuses on the application of group(IV) permethylpentalene complexes in the synthesis of polycarbonates. Out of the lab he could usually be found playing football.
