Andrew is a member of our chemistry & materials patent team.

Andrew has a Master’s degree in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge and a PhD in Organic Chemistry from the same institution. His Master’s project focused on the application of a novel catalytic enantioselective dearomatisation methodology to the synthesis of the bioactive natural product lycopodine. His doctoral research focused on the discovery of new chemical reactions using high oxidation-state metal catalysts. In particular, the production of tetrasubstituted alkenes from disubstituted alkynes using a combination of a hypervalent iodine(III) reagent and a copper catalyst.

Andrew joined Mewburn Ellis LLP in 2015.
