Murray-Rust Research Group


We're using cutting-edge informatics and software engineering to develop the future of knowledge-driven scientific research in chemistry and related subjects.

We do this by building and using software and systems for the representation, extraction and processing of scientific data across chemistry, materials science and solid-state physics. We're particularly interested in the following areas: chemical data representation and semantics, scientific publication and scientific literature, polymer informatics and materials informatics and simulation.
