About Joe

 Joe obtained his MSci degree from University College London. During his final year, under the supervision of Prof Tom Sheppard, he undertook a research project working with halogenated diols and their use as potential organocatalysts. Joe did his PhD at Imperial College London with Dr James Bull, developing new oxidative couplings for the efficient synthesis of medicinally relevant sulfone building blocks after previously undertook a UROP placement with the Bull group working on C(sp3)-H activation of heterocycles. Joe started as a research fellow in electrosynthesis in the group of Kevin Lam investigating the generation and trapping of high energy intermediates using electrochemistry.
