Research Interests: 

Research interests comprise of Bioinorganic Chemistry, Medicinal Inorganic Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Solids. Research activities in the areas of Bioinorganic and Medicinal Chemistry are centred on interactions of metal ions with peptides, proteins and nucleic acids: interactions of the antitumour active, organometallic compounds molybdocene dichloride and titanocene dichloride with peptides and RNA constituents
Research in this area is centred on quantitative polymorph analysis (X-ray powder diffraction, Rietveld methods, spectroscopy) and quantitative analysis of amorphous content.
