About Me

As programme manager of the Molecules Centre, I am looking to establish and strengthen connections with industrial and academic partners.

My personal research interests are in using chemical tools and models to understand biochemical phenomena: surface chemistry, supramolecular chemistry and multivalency, virology, and biosensors.
