About Eoghan

I studied chemistry at University College Dublin obtaining my PhD with Declan Gilheany in the area of M(salen) mediated asymmetric epoxidation. Following my PhD, I carried out postdoctoral research developing a method for the synthesis of P-stereogenic phosphorus compounds.

In 2005, I moved to the University of Bristol as the Research Officer in the group of Varinder Aggarwal. My research in Bristol has focused on the development of organosulfur catalysts and reagents in organic synthesis. In 2009, I was appointed as the course manager of the Bristol Chemical Synthesis Doctoral Training Centre.

In July 2012, I joined the School of Chemistry and Chemical Biology in University College Dublin, Ireland as an independent research group leader. The position was funded by Science Foundation Ireland under the Starting Investigators Research Grant scheme. I was elected as a Fellow of the Institute of Chemistry of Ireland in 2015. Following the successful conclusion of my SFI-Fellowship, I was appointed as a Lecturer in Organic Chemistry at UCD in July 2016.

Martin presents in Uppsala

Martin was in Sweden last week to present his research at the 15th European Workshop in Phosphorus Chemistry (EWPC-15). He was joined by Anna Vetter from the Gilheany group who also presented. Martin was presenting some of his IRC-funded research on organocatalytic methods for the synthesis of phosphorus compounds. The meeting mostly focused on presentations from PhD students and Postdocs working in all aspects of phosphorus chemistry. Martin and Anna gave talks on Friday and presented posters as well. Well done Martin and Anna.
