After receiving an MChem from the University of Reading, Nick completed a PhD at the University of Edinburgh, exploring the structural response of small organic molecules to environments of extreme pressure and temperature.

Now in a Post-Doctoral position at the University of Oxford, he is investigating the extent to which total scattering experiments can be carried out using a laboratory X-ray diffractometer. In particular, he is currently aiming to structurally characterise pharmaceutical-type molecules in the amorphous state.
