Robin Harris' Research Group

[Professor Robin Kingsley Harris moved with his research group from the University of East Anglia at Norwich to take up a chair in chemistry at Durham in 1984. He chaired the Board of Studies in Chemistry for three years from 1 August 1989 Head of Department and until 2004 continued to direct the national service for solid-state nuclear-magnetic-resonance spectroscopy (=NSNMRSS1), which he had began to direct when at East Anglia and had transferred to Durham in 1986. In retirement (from 2002, October) he lives in Durham and remains research-active. Biography]

1. The National Service for Solid-state Nuclear-Magnetic-Resonance Spectroscopy (=NSSNMRS) is supported by a rolling grant from the Government's Engineering and Physical Scences Research Council. When the Service relocated to Durham in 1986, its accommodation was in the south wing of the Mountjoy Research Centre and its manager was Dr Race R. Yeung, the immediate predecessor of David Apperley. In 2003, the Service relocated again - this time within Durham - to the Chemistry Building [rooms 022, 024 (Professor Randal Richards, paragraph 5)]. In 2004, the directorship of the Service passed from Robin Harris to Paul Hodgkinson Paul Hodgkinson's Research Group.
