Welcome to my research pages! I am a Senior Lecturer and Head of the Department of Chemistry at Lancaster University, leading 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.

Please feel free to explore! For those who are new to supramolecular chemistry you might like to start with this introduction. Details on my current and past research may be found on these pages.

If you have any enquiries, please contact me. For those who are interested in joining my group, check out the postgraduate and undergraduate opportunities pages for advice.
