A 39-month PhD, under the supervision of Dr Paul Hodgkinson, funded by Leverhulme Trust, is available immediately in Durham University. The project aims to understand disorder in molecular organic solids using solid-state NMR, coupled with cutting-edge computational methods developed in the research group.

It was honoured to be invited to the Annual BRSG meeting: “Advances in experimental and simulation methods for NMR and EPR“ and to deliver a talk about my very recent work linking solid-state NMR and molecular dynamics simulations.
The annual meeting was dedicated to celebrating 50 years in NMR of Prof. Jim Emsley and Prof. Geoffrey Luckhurst. It was a pleasure to meet Jim and Geoffrey and to hear about their adventures in the work of magnetic resonance.
In a presentation, entitled “Computational Chemistry as a Time-Traveller’s Tool”, Valentina discusses how her molecular modeling techniques allow studying phenomena that occurred millions of years ago, that lead to the transition from geo- to biochemistry. She then demonstrates how the same methods, used to address fundamental questions, can also be applied to today’s problems of industrial interest, such as enhanced oil recovery and synthesis of high surface materials. All these processes are driven by interactions between organic molecules and layered materials under conditions difficult to reproduce through experiment alone.
Palatinate (noun; British; origin mid-19th century) – a light purple or lavender colour, as used in certain ceremonial robes of the University and City of Durham, and later also in sporting outfits. (Oxford English Dictionary).

Durham University Computational Chemistry community has started a Palatinate Challenge – Scientific articles to feature palatinate both as colour and a word.
Recent articles to satisfy the Challenge:
Our article, in collaboration with a group of Dermot O’Hare in Oxford and funded by SCG, Thailand appears on the cover of Chemical Communications
Our article is Referee recommended, making it to the HOT ChemComm article list:
