Research overview

My research falls within the area of supramolecular chemistry, being focused on creating receptors capable of highly effective molecular recognition.

Research Interests

My research interests are in the preparation of receptor molecules capable of the recognition of challenging chemical targets, for example, ion pairs and chiral molecules. It is anticipated that the most promising of these receptors could then be incorporated into sensory devices for the guest species which they preferentially bind.

I have experience in the preparation of interlocked molecular hosts and enantiopure metal complexes, which I seek to utilize in the generation of receptors capable of recognizing increasingly intricate guest species. The research combines both synthetic and analytical chemistry skills, and its impact extends beyond the primary aim of molecular recognition with potential benefits to other areas of scientific investigation, including catalysis and pharmaceutical drug development.
