Dr Nicholas Lockyer (BSc PhD CChem MRSC) - personal details
I am a Senior Lecturer in the School of Chemistry, Physical and Theoretical Chemistry Section. My first degree and PhD were from the Department of Chemistry at UMIST. On completion of my PhD I took up a post-doc with Prof John Vickerman to develop a new imaging ToF-SIMS (secondary ion mass spectrometry) instrument for surface chemical analysis. Further development work and biological applications of ToF-SIMS were pursued through a Leverhulme Special Research Fellowship. I joined the School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science on the creation of the new University of Manchester in 2004, being promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2008. In September 2011 I took up my current appointment.
My research group is based in the Manchester Interdisciplinary Biocentre and currently consists of 5 PhD students.
- Application of ToF-SIMS for Biochemical Microscopy
- Polyatomic ToF-SIMS: Fundamentals & Applications
- Single-Photon and Ultrafast Multiphoton Laser Post-ionisation
- ToF-SIMS studies in cancer biochemistry, diagnosis and therapy
- PhD in Laser Ionisation Mass Spectrometry, UMIST Chemistry 1996
- BSc Chemistry (1st Class), UMIST Chemistry 1991
