Dr Paul Martin

Paul MartinDr Paul Martin joined the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences at Birmingham as a Research Fellow working with Professor Valsami-Jones on the ModNanoTox project to model nanoparticle toxicity to describe the behaviour of engineered nanoparticles in organisms and the environment. The main objective of Paul’s work is to develop molecular models of surface reactivity of nanoparticles, thus creating the mechanistic basis to link reactivity with toxicity. 

Dr Martin's research interests include:

  • Computational Chemistry
  • Nanoscale Materials Modeling
  • Solid State Chemistry particularly Minerals and their Surfaces
  • Modelling Biomineralisation
  • Modelling Nanotoxicity and Reactivity
