Personal profile


I was born and rasied in Dublin, Ireland. I studied Medicinal Chemistry at Trinity College Dublin, where I received my BA (Mod.) in 2013.

I then continued at Trinity for my PhD research under Prof. Eoin Scanlan in the Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute (TBSI), where I focused heavily on synthetic organic chemistry. My thesis work was a combination of carbohydrate chemistry, radical-based synthesis, and methodology development for accessing structural motifs found across medicinal chemistry.

In 2021 I was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to work with Prof. Champak Chatterjee at the Univeristy of Washington, Seattle, USA. This put me through my paces in chemical biology, ubiquitin science, and was my first introduction to targeted protein degradation.

At the University of Dundee, I am working as a post-doctoral researcher under Prof. Alessio Ciulli in the Centre for Targeted Protein Degradation (CeTPD). My current research centres on identifying novel small-molecube probes to investigate and hijack E3 ligases. Additonally, I am one UoD's representatives on the Royal Society of Chemistry Tayside committee.
