Meet The Team
Aaron completed his PhD in chemistry from the University of Cambridge in 2019 under the supervision of Prof. Matthew Gaunt developing new strategies for the selective Pd-catalyzed β-C–H activation of aliphatic amines and methodology for the multicomponent synthesis of tertiary aliphatic amines via the photocatalytic reduction of alkyl iminium ions.
He then moved to Princeton University as a postdoctoral researcher working in the laboratory of Professor David MacMillan where he developed a platform for intracellular small-molecule target ID (μMap) based upon visible-light-mediated photocatalysis in collaboration with Merck (Cambridge, MA; Kenilworth, NJ).
In 2021, Aaron returned to Cambridge as a Marie-Curie Fellow investigating the multicomponent synthesis of chiral amines using photoredox catalysis.
Currently, Aaron is a Lecturer in Organic Chemistry at the University of Manchester.
