Filip Szczypiński is a Research Associate in the Department of Chemistry. He currently works with Dr Kim Jelfs on computational prediction of large organic polyhedra via a high-throughput cheminformatics workflow. His research involves force field and ab initio studies of organic cage molecules that can be synthetically realised to give new porous materials.

Filip received his PhD at the University of Cambridge where he synthesised hydrogen-bonding recognition-encoded sequence oligomers and studied their supramolecular assembly pathways under the supervision of Christopher Hunter FRS. Prior to his doctoral work, Filip worked on the synthesis of metal-organic cages and their guest-binding properties with Jonathan Nitschke at the University of Cambridge and on total synthesis of macrolide antibiotics with Andrew Myers at Harvard University.
