My research interests range from Nanomedicine and Light-harvesting Materials to Supramolecular and Systems Chemistry, including Origin of Life. I am focused on advancing our understanding of how molecules interact with one other and ‘self-assemble’ and how we can then harnessed self-assembly to create novel functional materials and systems, with a particular focus on systems and materials based on peptides, polymers and RNA.

PhD in Organic Chemistry (U. Sydney, 2001).
BSc. in Chemistry (U. Iceland, 1996).
