Robert O'Toole

Robert O’Toole was born and raised in Greater Manchester, England. He obtained his MChem from the University of York (2021), where he explored supramolecular architectures as charge-storage devices under the guidance of Dr Alyssa Avestro. In the summer of 2020 during COVID lockdown, he developed computational modelling parameters for molybdenum-paddlewheel complexes with Dr Luke Wilkinson. Robert moved to Reading in Autumn 2021 to begin his
PhD studies in the Cooper group, where he will integrate stimuli-responsive supramolecular architectures into lipid bilayers to observe membrane transport properties

Jason Panteli

Jason Panteli was born and raised in Nicosia, Cyprus. He obtained his BSc in Chemistry from the University of East Anglia (2023), where he studied the site-specific incorporation of unnatural amino acids, for the binding modification of nanobodies under the supervision of Dr Amit Sachdeva. Jason joined the Cooper research group in September 2023 to carry out an MSc in Chemical Research. His project focuses on incorporating mechanically interlocked molecules into polymers to generate stimuli-responsive materials.
