Keywords: Physical organic chemistry  Organocatalysis  Biocatalysis Expertise: Our research focuses on organic and biological reaction mechanisms with an emphasis on catalysis. Through understanding the strategies underpinning catalysis, we aim to inform the design of improved (enzymic and non-enzymic) catalyst systems. Our research aligns with both the ‘Physical Organic Chemistry’ and…
