We are an interdisciplinary team, with backgrounds in Chemistry, Materials Science, Engineering and Physics. The majority of the team are based in our labs in Oxford, but we also have students and postdocs that Prof. Hoye previously supervised in Cambridge and Imperial, and who remain valuable members of the team. Researchers arranged alphabetically by surname.
