Recently retired as co-leader (with Murray H G Munro) of Marine Chemistry group, the focus of which was on the isolation and characterisation of novel biologically-active metabolites from marine invertebrates and fungi. Continues to be actively involved in writing articles and reviews, and until recently maintained the bibliographic databases (MarinLit and AntiMarin) of the marine natural products literature.
