Dr Antony Burton (PhD)
A Bath graduate, Antony completed his PhD project on the design, characterisation and catalytic evaluation of higher-order coiled coil polypeptides. He published six articles in scientific journals, which are available on our Publications page. He has since joined Princeton University (USA) as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Muir Group.
- Dr Tom Carter (PhD)
Dr Jamie Clifton (PhD)
A Bristol graduate, Jamie completed his PhD project on the synthesis of novel phosphine functionalised polythiophenes. The three publications that resulted from his work are now available from our Publications page. After graduation, he joined RWTH Aachen University, Germany as a postdoctoral researcher and at the time of writing he is working for CaRLa (Catalysis Research Laboratory) in Heidelberg, Germany.
Dr Katie Feeney (PhD)
Following graduation from the University of Oxford, Katie's PhD focussed on a new class of chiral organometallic nucleophiles containing a quaternary boron centre. She has published three papers during her PhD, which can be accessed via our Publications page. After completing her PhD, Katie joined Evotec as a Senior Scientist.
Dr Alexander Henderson (PhD)
A Bristol graduate, Alex's PhD project researched carbohydrate-based nitrogen heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) for asymmetric catalysis. His research produced five papers, which can be accessed from our Publications page. After graduation, Alex joined Carpmaels and Ransford LLP in London as a Trainee Patent Attorney.
Dr Thomas Hornsby (PhD)
Tom graduated from Bristol and his PhD research involved the structure elucidation and total synthesis of fungal polyketides and putative biosynthetic intermediates. He published two papers which can be viewed through our Publications page. After his PhD, Tom joined University College London as a Postdoctoral Research Assistant.
Dr Kieran Hudson (PhD)
An Oxford graduate, Kieran's PhD project was on carbohydrate-based interactions - from the molecular to the cellular level - which resulted in four papers. These can be accessed from our Publications page. Following his PhD, Kieran joined the University of British Columbia, Canada as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Withers group.
Dr Niall McCreanor (PhD)
Niall is a Queen's University Belfast graduate. His PhD project on enhancing the scope of rhodium-catalyzed carbonylative cyclopropane ring expansions generated four publications which are available through our Publications page. After finishing his PhD, Niall started work as a Postdoctoral Senior Scientist at AstraZeneca.
Dr Michelle Montgomery (PhD)
A Heriot-Watt graduate, Michelle's PhD project investigated palladium catalysts for C-H functionalisation. Her work produced two papers which are available via our Publications page. Following her postgraduate studies, Michelle joined D. Young & Co. LLP as a Technical Assistant.
Dr Sofia Papadouli (PhD)
Graduating from the University of Crete, Sofia's PhD project was researching N-pyrrolyl phosphines for use as rhodium-based hydroformylation catalysts. She produced two publications during the course of her PhD (see our Publications page for further details). At the time of writing, Sofia is a Scientist at CatSci.
Dr Michael Robertson-Ralph (PhD)
A Nottingham graduate, Mike's PhD project was jointly supported by Syngenta on the photochemical construction of complex natural and un-natural cyclic architectures. His worked produced three papers, including two on batch versus flow photochemistry, that can be viewed on our our Publications page. Mike is a Co-Investigator at PhotoDiversity.
Dr Joanne Sampson (PhD)
A Southampton graduate, Jo's PhD project focussed on the synthesis of biologically active compounds using cyclic sulfamidates. She has presented her work at the BOSS XIV Symposium in Brussels and RACI 2014 in Adelaide. After her PhD, Jo worked for CatSci as a Postdoctoral Scientist before joining the Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences (MIPS) in Melbourne, Australia where, at the time of writing, she is working with Prof. Philip Thompson.
Dr Samuel Timson (PhD)
Sam graduated from the University of Leicester before starting his PhD on asymmetric electrophilic copper catalysis. Sam decided to go into teaching after completing his PhD and secured an RSC Teacher Training Scholarship to aid his training.
