Stephen Mansell

Stephen Mansell is an Assistant Professor in the Institute of Chemical Sciences at Heriot-Watt University and is an Affiliate Researcher with the UK Catalysis Hub. The research interests of the Mansell group focus on harnessing main group and transition metal chemistry in unison in order to develop better catalysts. Specific targets include hydrogen transfer and hydrogen-borrowing processes, as well as C–H bond activation. He obtained his MSci degree from Imperial College London in 2005 and his PhD from The University of Bristol in 2009. After post-doctoral work in boron chemistry and small molecule activation mediated by organometallic uranium complexes, he started his current position in 2013.
