Jamie Lewis is an Imperial College Research Fellow hosted within the laboratory of Matthew Fuchter. His main research interests encompass broad aspects of supramolecular chemistry, including the synthesis of functional mechanically interlocked molecules, metallosupramolecular self-assembly and host-guest systems for sensing applications.



Jamie graduated in 2010 from the University of Otago, New Zealand, with a BSc (Hons) in chemistry before completing a PhD in 2014 at the same institute under the supervision of Dr. James Crowley, investigating metallosupramolecular host architectures. He subsequently took up a position as a postdoctoral research assistant with Prof. Steve Goldup, initially at Queen Mary, University of London and then at the University of Southampton. The award of a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship in 2015 allowed him to continue his research on mechanically interlocked molecules in the same group. He began his independent research career as an Imperial College Research Fellow in October 2017.
