About the Winner


Andrew Goodwin is Professor of Materials Chemistry at the University of Oxford. Born in Australia, he studied Chemistry and Pure Mathematics at the University of Sydney. He remained briefly in Sydney for a PhD in Inorganic Chemistry under the supervision of Cameron Kepert, before moving to the UK in 2002 to undertake his second PhD, this time with Martin Dove in the Mineral Physics group at the University of Cambridge. On graduating, he remained in Cambridge-first as a Junior Research Fellow at Trinity College (2004), and later as an EPSRC Career Acceleration Fellow (2008). In 2009 he joined the Chemistry Faculty at Oxford, and was promoted to Professor in 2014. 

Andrew currently leads a vibrant research group of about 20 students and Research Fellows in Oxford's Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory. The main goal of his research programme is the development of a broad understanding of the role of correlated disorder in functional materials. From an experimental viewpoint the group specialises in the use of total scattering methods - in the form of both pair distribution function and (increasingly frequently) single-crystal diffuse scattering measurements.
