We are delighted to welcome Professor Christian Doonan to the CrystEngComm team as one of our Associate Editors!

Christian Doonan, CrystEngComm, Royal Society of Chemistry



Christian Doonan is Professor of chemistry at the University of Adelaide. He received his PhD at the University of Melbourne and carried out post-doctoral work with Professor Omar Yaghi at the University of California, Los Angeles.

His research group focuses on the design and synthesis of Metal-organic Framework materials for application to biotechnology and catalysis. Christian is a member of the international MOF commission and his research has been recognised through several awards including, an Australian Research Council Future Fellowship, a distinguished lectureship award from the Chemical Society of Japan and a Double Hundred Talent Professorship at Qingdao University.

Christian also recently guest-edited a themed issue of CrystEngComm with Christopher J. Sumby on Metal-Organic Framework Catalysis.
