Andrew was born in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. He received his Master's Degree in Chemistry from The University of Manchester in 2011. In 2012, he commenced work toward his PhD at Trinity College Dublin, under the supervision of Dr. Aidan R. McDonald, being awarded his degree in late 2016. His PhD thesis concerned the design and synthesis of macrocylic tripodal triamine ligands and investigations into their coordination chemistry.
In 2017 he commenced as a post-doctoral researcher in the research group of Prof. Stephen Dooley at the School of Physics. His research is focused on developing the use of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy as a diagnostic tool for the analyses of fuels and combustion processes.
Synthetic chemistry, oxidation catalysis, NMR spectroscopy.
Organic synthesis, inorganic synthesis, purification, NMR spectroscopy.
In his spare time Andrew enjoys following the “Rafa”lution!
