I am a PhD researcher based in in the Department of Earth Science and Engineering. My research centres on understanding the complexation of transition row metals with siderophores, in particular with mugineic acids. This involves studying the structure and reactivity of metal-ligand complexes using experimental (potetiometry, voltammetry) and theoretical (density functional theory) techniques. Efforts are targeted towards trying to understand the role of these processes as a possible controlling factor in the Zn efficiency of rice and elucidating how changing compositions of aqueous solutions are modifying complexation kinetics and stability. I am supervised by Prof, Dominik Weiss, Prof. Ramon Vilar, Prof. Patricia Hunt and Dr. Danny O'Hare.
