Rob graduated with a First Class MChem in Chemistry from the University of Manchester, UK in 2009. He stayed in Manchester to complete his Ph.D. under the co-supervision of Prof. Jonathan Clayden and Dr. Simon Webb. Rob then joined the Kiessling lab as an NIH Postdoctoral Research Fellow in November 2013. His current work aims to construct chemical probes to aid the study of cell wall biogenesis in mycobacteria, and facilitate the early detection of human pathogens including M. tuberculosis.
