Academic biography

Anthony Reilly is an assistant professor in computational chemistry in the School of Chemical Sciences at Dublin City University and a Funded Investigator in the SFI-funded Synthesis and Solid-State Pharmaceutical Centre. His research is in the area of modelling and understanding the structure and properties of molecular materials, ranging from fundamental insights into thermal motion in crystal structures to polymorphism in pharmaceuticals. The techniques being applied and developed include ab initio calculations, empirical-potential simulations and structural informatics.

Anthony obtained a degree in Natural Sciences, with Honours in Chemistry (First Class), from Trinity College Dublin in 2006. He then went on to complete a PhD in Chemistry at the University of Edinburgh in 2009, before postdoctoral research positions at the Technische Universität München (2010-2011) and the Fritz-Haber-Institut der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft (2012-2013). From 2014-2017 he was a Design Centre Scientist at the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre and from 2015-2017 he was a Bye Fellow of Murray Edwards College, Cambridge. In February 2017, Anthony joined the School of Chemical Sciences in DCU.
