Dr Robert Asher

Dr Robert Asher

Staff Fellow, Zoology

Dr Asher is a University Lecturer in Zoology and Curator of the Museum of Zoology.

His research focuses on how the many radiations of mammals, particularly those from the southern hemisphere, develop and are interrelated.

Dr Nick Bampos

Dr Nick Bampos

Director of Studies, Chemistry

Dr Bampos is Assistant Director of Research in the University's Chemistry Department.

His interests encompass a number of areas spanning conventional organic, biological and inorganic chemistry, and the use of NMR spectroscopy.

Dr Tom Bennett

Dr Tom Bennett

Staff Fellow, Materials Science

Dr Bennett is Royal Society University Research Fellow in the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy.

His research interests are in Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) - network solids in which inorganic nodes (clusters or metal ions) are linked via organic ligands in an infinite array. The synthesis of novel MOF materials has been the subject of intense research and debate over the last decade, mainly because of their potential for application in gas storage and separation, catalysis and chemical sensing. 

Dr John Biggins

Dr John Biggins

Staff Fellow, Physics

Dr Biggins is a a lecturer in the Theory of Condensed Matter Group, part of Cambridge University's Cavendish Laboratory.

His research is on the theoretical description of soft condensed matter and biological systems.

Prof Jane Clarke

Professor Jane Clarke

Professorial Fellow, Chemical Biology

Professor Clarke leads a research group in the Department of Chemistry.

Her research covers a number of areas of Chemical Biology including protein folding and the link between genetic mutation and disease.

Dr Felix Deschler

Dr Felix Deschler

Fellow-Commoner, Physics

Dr Deschler is a member of the Optoelectronics Group in the Cavendish Laboratory.

The Optoelectronics Group researches the materials and device physics of low-temperature processible, molecular semiconductors and conjugated polymers and hybrid organic-inorganic heterostructures between such organic semiconductors and inorganic semiconductors, such as nanoparticles, metal oxides and metal halide perovskites.

Dr Jasmin Fisher

Dr Jasmin Fisher

Staff Fellow, Biology

Dr Fisher is an Associate Professor of Systems Biology in the Department of Biochemistry.

Dr Fisher has devoted her career to develop methods for Executable Biology; her work has inspired the design of many new biological studies. She is a pioneer in using formal verification methods to analyse mechanistic models of cellular processes and disease. Her research group focuses on cutting-edge technologies for modelling molecular mechanisms of cancer and the development of novel drug therapies.

Dr Cohl Furey

Dr Cohl Furey

Research Fellow, Physics

Dr Furey is a member of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics high energy physics research group.  

Her work focusses on finding an underlying mathematical structure to the standard model of particle physics. The goal of such a search is to answer open questions in the standard model, such as: Why are there three generations of quarks and leptons? Why does weak isospin act only on fermions which are left-handed? Why is the standard model's gauge group given by SU(3)xSU(2)xU(1)/Z_6? Progress has been made on these questions by considering division algebras, and the Clifford algebras that they generate.

Prof Mike Hobson

Prof Mike Hobson

Director of Studies, Physics

Prof Hobson is University Professor in Astrophysics and Cosmology.

His research interests include cosmology, in particular primordial fluctuations in the cosmic microwave background, and star-formation.

Dr Florian Hollfelder

Dr Florian Hollfelder

Staff Fellow, Biology

Dr Hollfelder is a University Reader in Chemical Biology.

His research centres around quantitative and mechanistic questions at the chemistry/biology interface, including the principles responsible for molecular recognition processes and their potential applications in biotechnology.

Dr Lutz Jermutus

Dr Lutz Jermutus

Fellow-Commoner, Biotechnology

Dr Jermutus is Senior Director, Research and Development at MedImmune.

His primary research interests are in Protein engineering, commercialisation (invention-to-market process), high-throughput assays for identifying protein, biopharmaceuticals and biologics.

Dr Vasant Kumar

Dr Vasant Kumar

Director of Studies, Materials Science

Dr Kumar is a University Senior Lecturer in Materials Science and Metallurgy.

His primary research interests are in Materials Chemistry Devices, Solid State Ionics, Electrochemistry and Metal Production, Refining and Recycling.

Dr Edmund Kunji

Dr Edmund Kunji

Director of Studies, Biology

Dr Kunji leads a research group in the Medical Research Council Mitochondrial Biology Unit.

He researches the role of mitochondrial carrier proteins in the transport of metabolites, cofactors and ions across the mitochondrial inner membrane.

Dr Lindley Lentati

Dr Lindley Lentati

Research Fellow, Astrophysics

Dr Lentati is a Research Fellow at the Kavli Institute for Cosmology.

Cambridge’s long history as a center for astronomy and cosmology includes Isaac Newton’s discovery of the law of gravitation and, in modern times, the discovery of pulsars and crucial contributions to the development of the Big Bang model of the Universe. The Kavli Institute is helping to continue this work by creating a single site at which the University’s cosmologists and astrophysicists from different academic departments can share knowledge and work together on major projects.

Dr Gunnar Moller

Dr Gunnar Möller

Fellow-Commoner, Physics

Dr Möller is a member of the Theory of Condensed Matter Group at the Cavendish Laboratory.

His research covers a range of topics including cold atomic gases, the fractional quantum Hall effect, frustrated spin systems, and topological quantum computation.

Dr Andrew Murray

Admissions Tutor; Director of Studies, Biology

Dr Murray is a University Lecturer in Integrative Mammalian Physiology.

His research is concerned with the effect of factors such as disease, diet and exercise on mitochondrial function and physiological performance.

Prof Liba Taub

Prof Liba Taub

Director of Studies, History & Philosophy of Science

Prof Taub is Director and Curator of the Whipple Museum.

Her research interests include the history of scientific instruments and the preservation of material relating to scientific heritage; early science and mathematics, particularly physics, meteorology and astronomy.
