Anthony obtained his degree of Ingénieur Chimiste (CPE Lyon) and his Masters degree in Organic Synthesis and Chemistry of Bioactive Molecules (UCBL 1, Lyon) in 2009. His undergraduate studies included a year placement in Priaxon AG (Germany, Munich, 2008) where he worked on isocyanide synthesis and multi-step synthesis, and six months in an academic research lab (CO2GLYCO, ICBMS Lyon, 2009) on the synthesis of an oxa-analogue of FR901483 under the direction of Prof. Peter Goekjan and Dr. David Gueyrard. After graduation Anthony moved to Glasgow and started his PhD under the supervision of Prof. Stephen Clark, focused on the total synthesis of cornexistins. In August 2013 he joined the Marsden Group as a postdoctoral researcher jointly supervised by Prof. Steve Marsden and Prof. Adam Nelson. He developed new routes to innovative libraries as part of the EU's €196M IMI project, the European Lead Factory.
