Jamie Hicks obtained his Ph.D. from Monash University, Melbourne (2012-2015) under the supervision of Prof. Cameron Jones. He worked on the synthesis and reactivity of low-coordinate, low-oxidation state transition metal complexes for which he won a number of awards, including the Springer Thesis prize (2016) and the 2016 Reaxys PhD Prize. He then undertook a postdoctoral position at the same institution under the joint supervision of Prof. Stuart Batten and Dr. David Turner (2015-2016), working on the incorporation of amines into porous coordination polymers. Jamie then moved to the UK to undertake his second postdoctoral appointment at the University of Oxford (2016-2019), under the joint supervision of Profs Jose Goicoechea and Simon Aldridge, working on the synthesis and reactivity of nucleophilic aluminium complexes. Jamie has recently returned to Australia as a DECRA Fellow; his current work involves the synthesis of highly reactive heterobimetallic complexes for N2 activation.
