Biography

Helen Fielding is Professor of Physical Chemistry. Her research is focused on the spectroscopy and ultrafast dynamics of excited states of molecules and protein chromophores in the gas-phase and in solution. Before coming to UCL in 2003, she worked at King’s College London (Lecturer 1994-1997; Reader 1997-2002; Professor 2002-2003). Prior to this, she was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Amsterdam, working with Professors Ben van Linden van den Heuvell and Wim van der Zande (1993-1994), a scientist at the National Physical Laboratory (1992) and a DPhil student, first at Cambridge then at Oxford, working with Professor Tim Softley (1989-1992). 

Research Summary

Helen Fielding’s group is recognized internationally for their original work in the field of spectroscopy and dynamics of excited state of molecules. During the last 15 years, they have designed and built four separate experiments employing photoelectron spectroscopy to study small neutral molecules in the gas-phase, large molecular anions in the gas-phase, molecules on surfaces and, most recently, organic chromophores in solution. They also have expertise in electronic structure theory to support the interpretation of their experimental work. They have a long-standing collaboration with Professor Graham Worth and current collaborations with Professor Jim Anderson, Professor Helen Hailes, Professor Geoff Thornton (UCL) and Professor Anastasia Bochenkova (Moscow State University).
