Biography

William Lewis received a BSc(Hons) and PhD from the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. After a short Postdoctoral Fellowship with Professor Peter Steel at the University of Canterbury he was appointed to the position of Research Officer and Manager of the Crystal Structure Service at the School of Chemistry, University of Nottingham.

Expertise Summary

William Lewis is X-ray Crystallographer and Metal-Organic chemist by training. He has expertise across all aspect of X-ray Crystallography, including single crystal X-ray diffraction, powder X-ray diffraction, as well as parametric studies of compounds using various stimuli (pressure, temperature etc.).

Current Research

Current research involves high-pressure crystallographic studies of a range of systems. We are interested in systems in which we can probe with other techniques in conjunction with changes in structure as a function of changing pressure. We also study systems where we can probe that change in intermolecular interactions as a function of pressure, such as hydrogen bonding and pi-stacking, especially in systems where more than one intermolecular interactions is present. Finally, in collaboration with Dr Debbie Kays we are interested in probing the effect of pressure on low-coordinate metal complexes.
