Alex is a member of our chemistry & materials patent team.
Alex has a Master’s degree in Chemistry and a DPhil in Organic Chemistry, both from the University of Oxford. His undergraduate project was centred on the synthesis of heterocycles using copper and palladium catalysis. His doctoral research focused on asymmetric phase-transfer catalysis, developing stereoselective cascade reactions for the rapid formation of highly functionalised polycyclic frameworks from simple starting materials.
Alex joined Mewburn Ellis LLP in 2016.
