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.
