I completed my PhD at The University of Sydney in 2005. I then undertook a series of postdoctoral positions at The University of Melbourne, The University of St Andrews (UK) and UNSW. In 2009, my independent career commenced with the award of a University of Sydney Postdoctoral Research Fellowship. In 2011, I was appointed as a Lecturer in Chemistry at UNSW, and since then I have been promoted to Senior Lecturer (2014) and Associate Professor (2019). My research interests are broadly in the areas of organic synthesis and medicinal chemistry, with a frequent focus on fluorinated target molecules.
