The Burgess group explores the physical and chemical properties of molecules at electrified interfaces. Our research uses interfacial electrochemical methods to explain phenomena such as charge transport, molecular organization, and self-assembly. We particularly emphasize the coupling of electrochemistry with non-traditional spectroscopic and diffraction techniques including synchrotron radiation, infrared spectroscopy and neutron reflectometry. Fundamental problems we address include the behaviour of nanoparticle stabilizing ligands on charged surfaces and the mechanism of electron and proton transfer in redox active thin films.
