4th year DPhil at University College/ Oxford CDT in Synthesis for Biology & Medicine. Robert is investigating asymmetric autocatalytic reactions. When not in the lab, he enjoys dealing in antiques, reading early printed books and the quizzing circuit.
4th year DPhil at St Hilda's College/ Oxford CDT in Synthesis for Biology & Medicine. Aside from chemistry he enjoys a wide range of sports, and devotes as much time as possible (and most of his money) to attending gigs and music festivals.
4th year DPhil at Wolfson College/ Oxford CDT in Synthesis for Biology & Medicine. Alexandre is working in the Fletcher group and collaborates with Rob Paton. Apart from chemistry he enjoys swimming, reading and hiking.
4th year DPhil at Lincoln College. Alexander is involved in the synthesis of new ligands and their application in asymmetric catalysis. He has a BSc and MSc degree from RWTH Aachen University, Germany and enjoys organometallic chemistry, travelling, and the pub.
4th year DPhil at Keble College. Prior to Oxford, Joseph studied at the Australian National University in Canberra (his beloved home town). He enjoys chemistry, pub and music.
Elias 'The Beerd' Post
4th year DPhil at Worcester College. Elias has a masters degree from Radboud University in the Netherlands and is currently working on development of new autocatalytic reactions. He likes to play squash, to brew beer and to go to the pub.
Lucy van Dijk
4th year DPhil at Balliol College/Oxford CDT in Synthesis for Biology and Medicine. Lucy’s research focuses on the mechanistic investigation and development of asymmetric catalytic reactions, she collaborates with Prof. Rob Paton. She enjoys travelling and music.
3rd year DPhil at New College. Wieland has a BSc from the University of Cologne, Germany and an MSc from ETH Zurich, Switzerland. Currently, he is working on asymmetric catalysis developing reactions that introduce more than one stereogenic center. He enjoys surfing, tennis/squash, and cooking.
