Jamie Walsh

About Jamie

Jamie got his undergraduate degree from Trinity College Dublin in Ireland, obtaining a BA degree in Medicinal Chemistry. His final year research project was inorganic based and focused on molybdenum-based catalysts for allylic trifluoromethylation.

Jamie has now decided to further his interest in chemistry research and broaden his knowledge by pursuing a PhD at the University of Greenwich in electrochemistry. He hopes to develop new photo-electrochemical batch and flow methods to electro-generate and photo-decompose diazo compounds in-situ to produce carbenes, minimising the risks by keeping their concentration virtually close to zero during the process.

An interesting fact about Jamie is that he is a world-renowned Irish dancer!
