I am currently a PhD student in the Clinical and Health Sciences academic unit at the University of South Australia. My skills are focused on using synthetic organic chemistry as a tool to develop novel antibacterial compounds to help treat infectious diseases.
PhD Project Description:
Functionalisation of a coumarin framework for the development of novel membrane-active antibacterial agents. The functionalisation of coumarin with hydrophilic and hydrophobic constituents will generate a series of membrane-active antibacterial amphiphiles. Activity will be assessed using minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and the mechanism of action of active compounds will be determined.
