In 2005 Michael graduated with a First Class degree in chemistry from Merton College, University of Oxford. During the Part II year he worked with Prof. Softley on the application of Landau-Zener theory to Rydberg states of molecular hydrogen. In 2009 he completed a PhD in theoretical chemistry at the University of Edinburgh under the supervision of Prof. Madden, FRS. The research investigated the factors affecting the rate of heterogeneous electron transfer at a metallic electrode in the context of Marcus theory through molecular dynamics simulations.
