Dr  Michael  Harding

Mike Harding joined the group in 1999 following a PhD with Jim Anderson at the University of Sheffield.  Mike investigated the use of sequential and parallel kinetic resolutions as strategies for asymmetric synthesis, and the approaches were applied to the two-directional synthesis of C-linked disaccharide mimetics.  After leaving the group, Mike travelled the world before undertaking further postdoctoral work at the University of Sydney.
