Dr. David Day - Chan Group


David Philip Day obtained his MChem degree with Honours from the University of East Anglia (UEA), UK, and later completed his PhD in organic chemistry under the supervision of Professor Philip Page (UEA). David then moved onto an ERC funded post-doctoral fellowship in the group of Professor Gregory Wildgoose (UEA), and then an organic chemistry teaching fellowship at Newcastle University, UK. David is now a research fellow in Professor Philip Chan's group at University of Warwick, UK, and is focusing his research in the areas of sustainable synthetic organic chemistry and organocatalysis.
