I completed my PhD in pysical organic chemistry under the guidance of Professor Tony Kirby (University of Cambridge, UK). Post-doctoral periods with Professors Steve Withers (University of British Columbia, Canada) and Ian Williams (Univeristy of Bath, UK) followed taking up a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship at the University of Bath. I am currently back on Canada's west coast, working part-time in the Vocadlo lab and following up on some earlier mechanistic studies of GH84 enzymes. My interests lie in understanding a wide variety of biologically and synthetically interesting reaction mechanisms through combinations of experimental and theoretical approaches .
