Personal profile

Research interests

I’m the Teaching Fellow for Synthesis within the department and have a particular focus on the teaching of fundamental organic chemistry throughout the undergraduate programme. In addition to lecturing numerous course in the area, I am interested in developing new methods for supporting student learning of organic reaction mechanisms and functional group interconversions.

Undergraduate laboratory teaching also forms a substantive part of my role, where my interest lies strongly in the development of laboratory skills and understanding of safe working practices. Within the teaching laboratory, I am also interested in supporting the role of graduate teaching assistants to maximise overall student learning.

My departmental responsibilities include coordinating laboratory and non-laboratory units along with being a member of several committees, while externally I am recognised as a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

My background is in organic and supramolecular chemistry, having previously completed undergraduate, postgraduate and postdoctoral studies at the University of York. My research involved the development of self-assembling multivalent (SAMul) nanosystems able to bind to and/or sense biologically relevant polyanions such as DNA or heparin. Amongst other things, I led work developing Mallard Blue; a heparin sensor dye named after a steam train!

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
