Group Overview

The research in the Bain Group can be loosely characterised as 'wet' surface chemistry. We are motivated by two general questions:
1. What is the relationship between the microscopic structure of a thin film and the molecular structure of its constituent molecules?
2. How do the microscopic properties of an interface determine its macroscopic behaviour?
Our focus is on fundamental physical chemistry, but the systems we study have potential applications in areas such as lubrication, food processing, printing and coating technology, process engineering and pathology. Systems are chosen to be sufficiently complex to capture the essential behaviour of real applications, yet simple enough to permit a determination of the structure of the interface.
In 2005, I moved from Oxford to Durham, a picturesque university town in north-east England.
