Research Area (Doctoral)
Computational chemistry and molecular modelling is a rapidly growing field which allows the chemist the opportunity to study and decipher the complexities of chemical reactions from in front of a monitor. The field has grown exponentially with increasing computing power and today researchers are starting to unravel many chemical mysteries which were previously not discernible through experimental chemistry alone. George’s research focuses on the mechanistic elucidation of proline catalysed reactions where his findings have shown that things are not as simply or a clear cut as we have been led to believe.
