Synthetic Inorganic and Organometallic Chemistry for Functional Molecules

In the last fifteen years, I have developed a diverse, multi-faceted research programme of both academic and industrial relevance featuring innovative applied synthetic chemistry (crossing traditional inorganic and organic boundaries). We are carrying out world-leading research in ligand and compound design, executing fundamental science combined with considerable impact and relevance. I am particularly enthusiastic about the application of the new molecules that my group synthesises and the development of new, interdisciplinary research lines. Our strengths lie in synthetic inorganic/organometallic chemistry and elegant synthetic strategies have been developed, dovetailed with utilisation of the new compounds for applications within catalysis, materials science and biomedical imaging.
