Research Summary

Steve is interested in developing experimental techniques to study the formation, properties and reactivity of atoms and molecules which posses considerable internal energy - and the interpretation of the results from such experiments. . This energy is usually electronic, vibrational or both. The targets of  experiments range from revealing the reactivity of molecular dications, which is of relevance in planetary ionospheres, to studying the formation of new molecules on cold (20 K) interstellar dust grains.

Teaching Summary
Steve has contributed to many courses for UCL Chemistry and the BASc over his career at UCL. Specifically,  Steve developed and taught on CHEM0005, Chemical Foundations, the first chemistry course taken on the Chemistry Programme, for many years.  He still contributes to this course as Course Organizer, both developing new learning resources and dealing with the every-day running, administration and communication aspects of the module.
