Who am I?

Name:Lindsey J. Munro

Role:Deputy Head of Department (Natural Sciences)

Fact:My first school was in the USA for 6 months – which started my love of exploring the world, hiking up mountains and spending time outdoors. I have enjoyed visiting Wuhan –it’s a great way to practise my Mandarin!

What do I teach?

Within Chemistry, I teach Atomic and Molecular Structure and Molecular Modelling to first year students, Drug Design to second year and Quantum Chemistry to those who are in their final year of studies.

Research Interests

My main interests lie within Aroma Chemistry and Antioxidant Properties of Flavonoids. I pay attention to Materials Modelling, where I look at the interaction of atoms, molecules and clusters with surfaces and the effect of defects, impurities and functional groups on surface interactions. I also enjoy researching solvent effects, development of accurate intermolecular and atom-bulk potentials, synthesis and electronic properties of nanodevices.

Words of wisdom:

Don’t worry if you find something difficult. Keep trying to learn concepts, practice application and ask questions. Staff are more than happy to help and the reward for mastering something is huge!
