Southampton’s expertise in demand in New Zealand

Published: 13 June 2013

Head of Chemistry Professor Phil Gale has been awarded a 2014 Visiting Erskine Fellowship at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand.

His expertise in supramolecular chemistry of anionic species and in particular the molecular recognition, sensing and lipid bilayer transport of anionic species complements some of the research currently underway by Professor Paul Kruger and his team in Christchurch.

"I was really delighted and honoured to be awarded this Fellowship," says Professor Gale. "This will give me the opportunity to spend two months in New Zealand next year and to teach a course to the students in Christchurch. I am also looking forward to exploring New Zealand and visiting some of the other Chemistry departments in the country.'

'It will be a great pleasure to welcome our guest to the University of Canterbury," adds Professor Kruger, "As Phil is a world leading researcher, gifted scholar and author of some seminal graduate and undergraduate textbooks within supramolecular chemistry, it will be an excellent opportunity for our students to learn of the latest exciting developments in this subject.

Visiting Erskine Fellowships at the University of Canterbury are funded by a generous bequest from a former distinguished student John Angus Erskine. It enables some seventy Fellowships to be awarded each year for international visitors.
