About Terry

A short intro from Terry

Dr. Terrance J. Hadlington

Junior group leader, TUM Junior Fellow, and Liebig Fellow

Terry grew up in the UK, and received his MChem degree from the University of Bath in 2011. He then moved to Melbourne, Australia, where he conducted his PhD research with Prof. Cameron Jones at Monash University, utilizing heavier tetrylenes in catalysis. During this time, he also spent four months at the University of Oxford, working with Prof. Simon Aldridge. He then relocated to Berlin as a UniCat Postdoctoral Fellow with Prof. Matthias Driess. In late 2019, Terry started his independent research career at the TU Munich, supported by a Liebig Fellowship of the FCI. Here his fascination regarding the synergistic reactivity between low-valent main group ligands, such as gallylenes and stannylenes, and low-valent first row transition metals is a major point of investigation, as are broader main group catalyses, and the investigation of unexplored hydride chemistry, primarily that of beryllium.

Since establishing his independent research group in Munich, Terry has been awarded the prestigious Liebig Stipendium of the FCI, an Independent Research grant from the DFG, the Exploration Grant of the Boehringer Ingelheim Foundation, and an ERC Starting Grant. He was also the recipient of the 2022 Wöhler-BASF-Nachwuchs Preis of the GDCh, and the 2023 ADUC Preis.
