Personal profile

Research interests

My reseach interests are centred around the molecular inorganic chemistry and the development of new chemical reactions, particularly those involving light and/or main group elements.

Specific, current areas of research include:

  • Isolation of reactive radical intermediates for the study of photoredox catalysis
  • Molecular methods for the transformation of N2
  • The development of 'transition metal-like' reactivity using main group elements
  • The chemistry of elemental phosphorus (and industrially-relevant phosphorus-containing compounds)

More details can be found on the Scott group webpage.

Willing to supervise doctoral students

I am always keen to take on new PhD students. If you are interested, please get in contact.
