Darren Lee, University of Nottingham, UK

Vania Zuin

In 2005, Darren began his career studying chemistry at Loughborough University in the UK, in 2009 he stayed on at Loughborough to study a PhD in organic chemistry with Prof. Andrei Malkov. His research was focused primarily around developing efficient routes to amino alcohols using palladium catalysed stereoselective amination reactions. In 2013, he then moved to a postdoc position at Loughborough with Dr Steve Christie using additive manufacturing (3D printing) in the construction of bespoke continuous flow micro reactors. He then moved to the University of Nottingham at the beginning of 2014 to work with Prof. Simon Woodward where he worked on several projects developing reaction methodology with sustainable organometallic reagents. In November 2015, Darren moved to his current position in the clean technology group of Prof. Sir Martyn Poliakoff and Prof. Mike George where he has been working on several different projects, primarily working toward developing new technology for more efficient and green photochemical processes. Darren’s research interests mainly lie in developing sustainable reaction methodologies and technologies including; photochemistry, homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, organocatalysis, flow chemistry, process chemistry and mechanistic studies.”
