Matthew Calvert

From New Zealand, now working at HZI/HIPS, Germany

Matthew studied chemistry at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, where he carried out PhD studies on the total synthesis of the indole alkaloid yuremamine. His synthetic chemistry focus will continue in the research group of Dr. Alexander Titz, where he will synthesise oligosaccharide mimics to facilitate investigation into the reactivity and structure of a novel galactosyltransferase from Caenorhabditis elegans.
