Our group is interested in understanding mechanisms of catalytic processes and improving/optimising the application of these processes in both academia and industry. The research is highly collaborative and focuses on the interdisciplinary interface between Physical/Organic/Process Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. The current research themes in the group include organic synthesis on water, applications of AI and Machine Learning to chemical science, studies of metal catalysed coupling reactions using state-of-the-art physical and analytical techniques, and CO2 utilisation in high value chemical manufacture.
