I completed my PhD in medicinal chemistry in 2001 at King's College London and after a few short research assignments, I joined Kingston University as a research fellow in 2002. I worked on semi-synthetic cardioactive steroids (bufadienolides), a project funded by the Special Trustees of St Thomas' Hospital. In 2006, I changed direction and took on the role of NMR senior technician at Kingston, supporting teaching and research in the School of LSPC. During that time I collaborated with a number of academic colleagues offering NMR expertise to help answer varied scientific questions. In December 2017, I returned to the Department of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences where I am now a senior lecturer in organic and pharmaceutical chemistry.
Senior Lecturer in Organic and Pharmaceutical Chemistry
I teach chemistry on a number of courses. Although my role is to teach organic and pharmaceutical chemistry at levels 4-7, I also teach general chemistry to level 4 life sciences students (LS4002) and NMR and spectroscopy data analysis and interpretation to level 5 pharmaceutical science students (CH5007). I am the module leader for CH4005, Foundation Chemistry - a module taken by pharmaceutical science students and biochemistry students. I am involved in supervising a number of MPharm, MSc or BSc projects during the academic year. I also am the personal tutor for 20-25 students in the Department of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences.
My current research interests include the structure elucidation of naturally occurring bioactive compounds (RMM<800DA) using high-resolution FT-NMR spectroscopy, and organic synthesis to prepare molecules with medicinal properties. I also collaborate on a number of projects where solution phase NMR is used as a means to quantify drugs (e.g. in formulation studies), their metabolites or investigate drug stability (e.g. anticancer drug cocktails). My interest is not limited to organic-type chemistry, I am also keen to collaborate on materials chemistry projects.
