Isabel Cooley

PhD Student

Isabel was awarded her MSci degree in Chemistry with an International Study Year from the University of Nottingham in 2019. Her Master’s project was undertaken under Dr. Richard Wheatley investigating the implementation and applications of the Iterated Stockholder Atom method for calculating atomic charges. Previously she has also completed a summer project with Professor Tony Stace and Professor Elena Besley investigating the aggregation of ice spheres using an electrostatic model. She is now undertaking a PhD with Professor Elena Besley studying the adsorption properties and stability of Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) and metal clusters.
