Our research explores photon, ion, and electron-driven processes in molecules and clusters. We are particularly interested in how highly specific knowledge of radiation interactions with isolated molecules can be exploited to enhance our understanding of processes in more complex environments, notably irradiated biological media. Clusters provide an important test case to extend the scope of experimental and theoretical techniques in order to characterise progressively more complex systems. This research has implications for the elucidation of radiation dose on the molecular scale, a topic of particular importance due to the growth of nano-science applications in industry and medicine.
