About the Winner


Dr. Kim E. Jelfs graduated from University College London with an MSci in Chemistry in 2006, having carried out her final year project at the Royal Institution of Great Britain. She received her PhD in Computational Chemistry from University College London in 2010, supervised by Prof. Ben Slater. Her PhD research involved computer modelling of the crystal growth of zeolitic materials. Following a research visit to the Universitat de Barcelona, she then joined the University of Liverpool as a PDRA working across the experimental groups of Prof. Matt Rosseinsky FRS and Prof. Andy Cooper FRS. There she focused on the computational prediction of the structure and function of porous materials, with her predictions later being experimentally realised in the laboratory. In 2013 she was awarded a Royal Society University Research Fellowship, which she took up at the Department of Chemistry at Imperial College London. Her research group is focused upon the development of computational approaches to assist in the discovery and understanding of supramolecular materials, including both porous materials and organic electronics.
