Research areas

My role is primarily focused toward teaching practical chemistry techniques/skills to undergradute students of all levels (http://chemistry.st-andrews.ac.uk/teaching/aims/). I am regularly involved in developing new chemistry laboratory courses/experiments. In addition to teaching within the school of chemistry, I have a variety of roles in connection with the School of Chemistry and RSC outreach activities (http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/chemistry/outreach/schools/).
