The Carravetta research groups main field of research is magic angle spinning (MAS) solid state NMR, with applications to superconductors and materials, with special attention to catalysis.
The group is involved in the development of new experimental and computational approaches for the use of nitrogen-14 NMR in model systems and biological samples.
The research collaborates on multi-disciplinary reseach on endofullerene materials using NMR, IR and INS.
Dr Marina Carravetta is Associate Professor in the Magnetic Resonance area in the School of Chemistry at the University of Southampton, since 2016 and was previously a Royal Society University Research Fellow since 2007. Before that, she was a postdoctoral fellow in Southampton. She obtained her Ph.D. from University of Stockholm (Sweden) in 2003 and completed her undergraduate studies in University of Calabria (Italy) with honours.
Marina's area of speciality is NMR, where she has a long track record of contributions in the areas of methodology developments (including symmetry based R sequences, singlet state NMR, nitrogen-14 detection, spin counting methods to name a few) as well as in the applications of solid state NMR to Materials Science, with particular focus on NMR on catalytic studies and operando NMR.
Marina was awarded the BRSG-NMRDG Annual Prize for Excellent Contribution to Magnetic Resonance by an Early Career Researcher in 2011 and the Ernst Award in 2004.
Marina is the Deputy Director of Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences Graduate school, Doctoral Program Director of the Chemistry Postgraduate school, senior PGR tutor, member of the special consideration board for our faculty PGR students, member of the Chemistry ED&I committee and of the Chemistry appeal officers.
Marina is member of the Institute of Physics magnetic resonance steering group (known as BRSG).
