Robert Arbon


Rob obtained his undergraduate and masters degrees in chemistry from Oxford, where he worked on a ring-polymer molecular dynamics project with Prof. David Manolopoulos.  After obtaining a masters from Harvard, Rob took time away from science, working in London as a financial consultant, where he learned a lot about big data analysis. Rob’s PhD project is funded by the Royal Society, and broadly focused on the topic of conformational dynamics in enzyme catalysis – i.e., exploring the extent to which coupled kinetic networks on rugged potential energy topologies impact phenomenological enzyme kinetics.
