Originally hailing from St. Ives, Cornwall, Patrick obtained an MSci degree with First Class Honours from the University of Bristol in 2013. His final year project was under the supervision of Prof. Anthony P. Davis, and involved the design and synthesis of novel amino-terminated dendrimers, and their subsequent use in the synthesis of a high affinity, high selectivity receptor for glucuronic acid. Patrick is currently running further tests on the aforementioned polyamino system and working on the design and synthesis of novel dendrimers for use as solubilising/auxiliary binding groups in synthetic carbohydrate receptors.
Patrick previously worked as a professional guitar player, and is currently working on further development of the touchstyle technique, particularly in the application of the doctrine to multiple instruments simultaneously.
