Personal profile

Research interests

Computational studies of organometallic reaction systems using predominately Density Functional Theory (DFT). These include:

  • C-H Activation
  • Nucleophilic Boryls
  • Cross-Coupling
  • Latent Steric Parameters

Teaching interests

I currently lecture on the Y2 courses "Introduction to Computational Chemistry" and "Group Theory".

I am also involved in the computational labs in both semesters for Y1 students, and the year long Y2 labs.

Finally, I organise and schedule the Chemistry Key Skills sessions we run throughout out the academic year for Y1, Y2 and final year Chemistry students.
