Biographical details

William Lewis completed a BSc(Hons) and PhD at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. His honours project was supervised by Professor Ward Robinson, and his PhD thesis by Professor Peter Steel. After a brief PDRA appontment in Professor Steel's research group, William moved to the School of Chemistry, University of Nottingham, to take the role of Research Office in Crystallography, and Manager of the Crystal Structure Service, under the supervision of Professor Sandy Blake. He was promoted to Senior Research Fellow in 2016. In 2018, after 10 years at Nottingham, William moved to a joint appointment between Syndey Analytical and the School of Chemistry at the University of Sydney, as the Core Facility Manager: X-ray, with responsibility for all X-ray techniques in Sydney Analytical.

Research interests

I have a wide range of expertise in single crystal small molecule X-ray diffraction. During my time at Nottingham I also deveolped an interest in high-pressure X-ray diffraction studies. I also have interests in crystallographic teaching, programming, and data handling.
