Probing structural diversity in molecular adlayers by tunnelling spectroscopy


Tim obtained his PhD from the MPI for Radiation Chemistry and TU Berlin in 2003, with a project on interfacial charge transfer processes in artificial and natural heme proteins, studied (mainly) by SERRS. During several visits to Jens Ulstrup's group at DTU, he got introduced to single-crystal electrochemistry and electrochemical STM, which he then applied as a postdoc in the same group to studying single-molecule charge transport, i.a. in small transition metal complexes. In 2006, he moved to Imperial College London, Department of Chemistry, to take up a lecturer position in Interfacial and Analytical Sciences. He was made Senior Lecturer in 2011 and then Reader in 2014. In 2017, he joined the School of Chemistry at Birmingham University as Chair of Physical Chemistry. His research interests include single-molecule charge transport in different environments, surface electrochemistry, single-molecule biosensing with nanopores and nanopipettes, and advanced data analysis tools such as Deep Learning.
