My research interests lie in the development and application of computational chemistry simulations to understand and predict the behaviour of molecules. This insight is crucial for coming up with better ways to synthesis valuable chemicals such as drugs or materials. Specific topics of interest:
My Research Supervision
I am a passionate science educator and have taught a range of chemistry courses across different levels. I am also involved in the development of new educational resources, including novel laboratory and workshop materials. I contribute to the chemical education literature through using computational chemistry simulations to enhance our pedagogical content knowledge of challenging chemistry concepts.
