Welcome to my research pages! I am a lecturer at the newly re-opened Department of Chemistry at Lancaster University, developing a research programme in Supramolecular Chemistry.
My primary research interests are in the investigation of Host-Guest Recognition and Self-Assembly. I am looking to build upon the knowledge and expertise I have gained through the study of interlocked molecules and chiral lanthanide complexes, to prepare functionally useful molecules, complexes and supramolecular assemblies.
