Dr Mark R. Crimmin received his PhD. from Imperial College London in 2008. In the same year, he was awarded a Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 research fellowship which he took to UC Berkeley. In 2011, he returned to London as a University Research Fellow of the Royal Society. Initially at UCL he is now back at Imperial. His current research interests are centered around developing new organometallic catalysts for the activation of small molecules with a specific interest in compounds of the rare-earth and main group elements.
