Reader Terry Kee is a member of the Atmospheric and Planetary Chemistry group at the University’s School of Chemistry.
The primary interest in the laboratory, of which Terry is a part, concerns the role of phosphorusin abiogenesis, the origins of life on earth. Phosphorus is central to contemporary biochemistry but significant problems remain as to how Nature could have incorporated it into the earliest forms of life on earth.
Terry’s work is highly collaborative and cross-disciplinary incorporating studies in meteoritics, corrosion electrochemistry, systems chemistry, bioenergetics, membrane science, computational modelling and high-energy geochemistry.
