Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD - email supervisor to discuss availability.


I studied chemistry at the University of Oxford, followed by a PhD in organic chemistry with Prof. Karl Hale at University College London. I then returned to Oxford to work as a post-doc with Prof. Sir Jack Baldwin and Dr. Rob Adlington. Since 2010 I have been a Lecturer (and now Senior Lecturer) in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Adelaide.
