Our Virtual Festival will take place over Zoom. The schedule below has links to four separate Zoom meeting rooms. Each room will host multiple sessions throughout the day about the Study Abroad Center programs, as well as application and funding information sessions. Click on the “Room 1”, “Room 2”, “Room 3”, or “Room 4” links to join the Zoom meeting room and view any session that interests you. Then, you can either stay in the room to see the next session, or leave the room and visit another session in a different Zoom room.

You do not need to have a Zoom account or any special programs installed; you can attend our Virtual Fair with just a web browser.

All live sessions will be recorded. Most morning session recordings will be replayed in the afternoon. During the replayed sessions, attendees may still have questions answered live by a Study Abroad Center team member.

At the end of every session, a moderator will post a link to a Sign-In form. Please fill out the form to let us know about your experience with the Virtual Fair and let us know what programs interest you. We will use the information to improve future virtual events and let you know about any events for your program of interest.

Here my research focused on the development of new continuous flow approaches towards important organic transformations and selected natural products that have since found widespread applications in both academia and industry. Upon completion of my PhD I was awarded a Feodor Lynen Postdoctoral Fellowship by the Alexander-von-Humboldt Foundation (Germany) allowing me to join the group of Prof. Larry E. Overman at the University of California Irvine (U.S.A.). During these 2 years my research focused on the total synthesis of alkaloid and terpene natural products as well as their analogues including their biological evaluation. This has resulted in a new anti-cancer drug candidate currently entering clinical studies through Novonco Therapeutics in the United States. In 2013 I returned to the UK to take a postdoctoral position with Prof. Ian R. Baxendale at the University of Durham, where I combined my interests in continuous flow technology and the synthesis of bioactive target molecules. In 2017 I moved to Ireland to join University College Dublin as an Assistant Professor in Continuous Flow Chemistry to pursue my independent career.
