Dr. Kim Jelfs
Kim Jelfs completed her PhD in Computational Chemistry at University College London, working on the development and application of modelling to understand zeolite crystal growth and was awarded the Ramsay Medal for the best completing PhD student. She was subsequently a visiting researcher at the Universitat de Barcelona, working with Prof. Stefan Bromley on the prediction of silicate cluster formation, before moving to the University of Liverpool, working as a PDRA across the experimental groups of Profs. Matt Rosseinsky and Andy Cooper. She was focused upon modelling porous materials, with my expertise spanning zeolites, metal-organic frameworks, polymers and porous molecular materials. Several of her computational predictions were experimentally realised. Since 2013 she has held a Royal Society University Research Fellowship (URF) at Imperial College London, allowing her to establish an independent research group. Her fellowship is entitled “Directing the synthesis of functional molecular materials”.
