Matt completed his Bachelor thesis at the University of Nottingham where he specialized in organic chemistry. Subsequently, he did his Masters thesis in the lab of Dr Nicklas Selander at Stockholm University’s Department of Organic Chemistry, where he pioneered new nitrosoarene reactions.
Matt arrived in our group in July 2016, initially as an intern. In March 2017 he started as a PhD student.
His current research project concerns a blend of catalytic C-H functionalization, organomain-group chemistry and the fascinating reactivity of aryne intermediates.
