Personal profile

Research interests

Reid Group Research was originally founded at the University of Strathclyde to deliver new daa-driven approaches to process chemistry. Our multidisciplinary interests - both academic and commercial - span contributions to:


1. Computer Vision methods: We develop computer programs to help chemists use cameras and video data to extract hidden mechanistic information about reactions on both small and large scales.


2. Reaction Mechanisms: We employ the principles of Physical Organic Chemistry to develop in-depth understanding of reaction mechanisms, specifically focussed on toxic reagent replacements.


3. Mechanistic Organo-electrochemistry: We develop methods and mechanistic understanding to serve emerging trends in synthethic electrochemistry.


4. Process Safety: We design and deliver innovations in process safety training and safety culture awareness,  with these efforts linked to Marc's emerging spinout company, Pre-Site Safety.
