University College Dublin
Working as professor at University college of Dublin, Ireland in Chemistry Department. Completed PhD in Chemistry He studied chemistry at University College Dublin obtaining my PhD with Declan Gilheany in the area of M(salen) mediated asymmetric epoxidation. Following my PhD, I carried out postdoctoral research developing a method for the synthesis of P-stereogenic phosphorus compounds. This work was patented and has been commercialised by Celtic Catalysts.
Research interests lie in the field of Organic Chemistry and include: catalysis, carbohydrate chemistry, heterocycle synthesis, organosulfur chemistry, ylide chemistry, ligand synthesis, stereoselective synthesis, synthesis of biologically active molecules including natural products.
