Dr Elliott is an organic chemist, specialising in the development and delivery of organic chemistry courses. Since 2016 he has been Deputy Director of Learning and Teaching for the School of Chemistry.

Prior to this, he led a research group undertaking fundamental research into aspects of stereoselective heterocyclic chemistry. This included the development of stereoselective methods for the annulation of oxazolines, thiazolines and pyrrolidines. Methods were developed for the highly stereoselective desymmetrisation of cyclohexa-1,4-dienes, giving complex products containing quaternary stereogenic centres. Dr Elliott has also carried out computational studies on a number of organic reactions, most notably the rearrangement reactions of organoborates.

Dr Elliott is the author of ‘How to Succeed in Organic Chemistry’, published in 2020 by Oxford University Press.

PhD Loughborough University of Technology (1994, C. J. Moody). Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Basel and Mülheim (1994-6, A. Pfaltz). Appointed as Lecturer, Cardiff, in 1996.

Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and Chartered Chemist.
