Dr Hamish Hei-Man Yeung is a Lecturer in the School of Chemistry. His research involves studying the formation and behaviour of materials for energy storage, electronics and sensing. His group uses in situ experimental techniques to understand how materials adapt and evolve during synthesis and when exposed to extreme conditions, such as high temperatures or high pressure.
As well as performing experiments in their Birmingham laboratory, The Yeung Research Group is a regular user of central scientific facilities, such as Diamond, the UK’s national synchrotron. Current topics of interest include metal-organic frameworks for sensing and separations, and molecular switches for data storage.
