Prof Simon Aldridge
Fellow in Inorganic Chemistry
Professor of Main Group Chemistry
I went to school at the local comprehensive (Grove School, Market Drayton) and then studied for both by undergraduate and doctoral degrees in chemistry at Jesus College, Oxford. After seven years in Oxford, I then spent two years in the USA as a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Notre Dame, and a brief period as a research fellow at Imperial College London, before getting my first academic post at Cardiff University in 1998. In 2007 I returned to Oxford to take up my current position at Queen’s.
