About John

John graduated with a Master’s degree in chemistry and physics from the University of St Andrews in 2022. His final-year project sought to investigate the reactivity of peri-substituted aromatic compounds, with the aim of testing the possibility, as predicted by a computational study, of a bonding interaction between peri atoms.


In 2023, John joined the Lam research group with an eagerness to broaden his understanding of synthetic chemistry by means of the pursuit of a Ph.D.

 John can often be found writing or performing music of some description when not at work.
