Mark Sims

Mark Sims is a Senior Lecturer in Computational Chemistry in the Department of Applied Sciences.

He graduated with an MChem degree from the University of York in 2011, where he also obtained his PhD. He was appointed a Postdoctoral Research Associate with the groups of Dr. John Moore and Prof. John Goodby in 2015, working on combining experimental and computational studies of ordered systems, primarily dye-doped liquid crystals, in order to develop design methods to aid in identifying synthetic targets. In 2017 he was appointed to his current role at Northumbria University.
