Mat Bryant studied Chemistry at the University of Bath, achieving a master's degree in 2011. He stayed on at Bath to do a PhD with Professor Paul Raithby and worked on developing new organometallic materials which exploit intermolecular interactions to provide visual responses to external stimuli, and have applications as molecular sensors.
Mat then worked as part of the Metastable-Materials group in Bath for a year developing and processing new solvent sensing materials into functional devices.
Mat joined the CCDC in November 2015 as a research and applications scientist to work on the collaborative ADDoPT (Advanced Digital Design of Pharmaceutical Therapeutics) project, and is currently involved in using the CSD Python API and CSD Materials tools to research structure-property relationships, working towards improving pharmaceutical formulation.
