Personal profile


Carl studied for his undergraduate degree in Chemistry at Balliol College, University of Oxford, graduating in 2010 following a final year project in organofluorine chemistry and catalysis with Professor Véronique Gouverneur FRS. He then moved to the University of Bristol as a PhD student under the supervision of Professor Guy Lloyd-Jones FRS, later moving with the Lloyd-Jones group to the University of Edinburgh, where he worked on diazomethane chemistry and cyclopropanation.

Following completion of his PhD in 2015, Carl remained in the Lloyd-Jones group for a short postdoc working on the synthesis of isotopically-labelled tracers for atmospheric chemistry. He then moved to RWTH Aachen for a postdoc working on homobimetallic catalysis with Professor Franziska Schoenebeck. In 2017, he was appointed as a fixed-term teaching fellow in the School of Chemistry at Trinity College Dublin, and was made permanent in 2020. He moved to the University of Manchester as a lecturer in chemistry in 2021.

Carl is currently subject lead for laboratory teaching, and academic lead for graduate teaching assistants in the Department of Chemistry.


Carl is the subject lead for laboratory teaching, and therefore has a particular interest in all aspects of practical chemistry education. In addition, he teaches core organic chemistry topics (Y1, Y3 + MSc), and supervises projects (Y4 + MSc) in the area of chemistry education.

Units taught

At present, Carl lectures the following courses:

  • Structure and Reactivity, CHEM10101 Introductory Chemistry
  • Reactive Intermediates, CHEM30411/31411/60101 Core Chemistry 1

He teaches in the following laboratory courses:

  • CHEM10600 (senior demonstrator, measurement lab)
  • CHEM22600 (senior demonstrator, synthesis lab)
  • CHEM30620 (course convenor and senior demonstrator, synthesis lab)
  • CHEM61200 (senior demonstrator, synthesis lab)

In addition, he acts as organic chemistry tutor for groups in years 1 and 2.
