Personal profile


My research interests lies in the area of organic synthesis, particularly developing new synthetic methodologies for the synthesis of potentially bioactive natural products and the application of biocatalysis to organic synthesis. I also collaborate with other groups which require synthetic organic chemistry input including liquid crystal groups based in Dublin and Kent State University.


I am the author of seven book chaptors and another eighty page chapter has been accepted for publication in 'Elegant organic Synthesis'

I am a regular referee for the premier Journals: Organic letters; J Organic Chemistry; Tetrahedron; Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry and Tetrahedron Letters



My teaching is primarily concerned with organic chemistry, stereochemistry and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy.
