Research Interests

As a bioorganic chemist, I have a range of interdisciplinary research interests. This involves a number of collaborative research projects with biologists and includes an emphasis on evolutionary issues: - prebiotic chemistry associated with the origin of metabolism - the role of iron in the catalysis of primary metabolic reactions, especially phosphoryl transfer- studies on semi-synthetic biologically active compounds of interest as potential therapeutics, e.g. phenazines- evolutionary perspectives on the metabolism of parasitic plants- chemical ecology of animal behaviour; chemical education- history and philosophy of science
