DR JENNIFER HISCOCK
Reader in Supramolecular Chemistry - University of Kent (UK)
Dr. Jennifer Hiscock is the Founding member for the WISC network. Jennifer obtained her PhD from University of Southampton (UK) under the supervision of Prof. Philip A. Gale in 2010. She continued her post-doctoral research within this group until 2015 when she moved to the University of Kent (UK) as the Caldin research fellow. In 2016 she was awarded a permanent lectureship position and at that some institution, which has since been followed by her promotion to Reader in Supramolecular Chemistry and Director of Innovation and Enterprise for the School of Physical Sciences in 2019. Her current research focuses on applying supramolecular chemistry to solve real-world problems. This includes the development of ‘frustrated’ supramolecular self-associated systems as weapons in the fight against antimicrobial resistance. Outside of work Jennifer has a passion for horse riding and trick training. Her horse Cherokee is the honorary member of the Hiscock research group and is working on his own version of rotaxane synthesis.
