Matthew Surman

Matthew Surman graduated from the University of East Anglia in 2016 with an MChem in Biological and Medicinal Chemistry; both his EPSRC funded summer project and final year project under Dr Joseph Wright investigated light stimulated carbon monoxide release from photoCORMs. He spent the nights of his undergraduate degree praying to the Gods of Chemistry for crystal structures of his compounds, but the Gods never answered. Matthew’s favourite hobbies include drumming and going to the gym, he also enjoys cycling and brushing his hair.
