Dr Mark Holden


My research is based on the control of crystal nucleation on surfaces. This involves studying a variety of materials nucleating under different conditions, such as from vapour, solution or melt. This collaborative project is between groups in the School of Physics and Astronomy (Christenson group) and School of Chemistry (Meldrum group), at the University of Leeds.

Prior to this project, I worked in industry as a radiochemist at Amec Foster Wheeler. I completed my PhD in materials chemistry at the University of Manchester in 2012, studying the crystal growth of nanoporous materials.
