Dr Thomas Fallon

Lecturer

School of Physical Sciences

Faculty of Sciences

Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD (as Co-Supervisor), but is currently at capacity - email supervisor to discuss availability.


The Fallon group works on the chemistry of shape-shifting molecules. These intriguing dynamic systems have no permanent structure and exist in constant metamorphosis. We develop new synthetic and analytical methods, and are applying these systems in molecular devices and medicinal chemistry.
