Andrew Weller, Associate editor
University of York, UK
Andrew Weller is Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of York, UK. Prior to this, he was Professor of Chemistry at the University of Oxford for 13 years. He moved to Oxford in 2007, after starting his independent career at the University Bath in 1999 as a Royal Society University Research Fellow. He is currently a holder of an EPSRC Established Career Fellowship, and was recipient of the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Frankland and Dalton Transactions European Lectureship awards.
His research focus is on the organometallic chemistry of the transition metals and homogeneous catalysis. In particular, he develops organometallic complexes that are “operationally unsaturated”, that lead to highly efficient, selective catalysts for a wide variety of important bond activation processes in both solution and single-crystalline phases.
