I am primarily gay and I am an inorganic chemist.//


I am a professor of inorganic and materials chemistry at University of Tromsø – The Arctic University of Norway. I use porphyrin analogues such as corroles as platforms for both fundamental studies of structure and bonding and applications such as cancer therapy and imaging (theranostics) and solar energy conversion. I love teaching and science communication (storytelling). Check out my inorganic text Arrow Pushing in Inorganic Chemistry (Wiley, 2014) and my biographical essay on gay chemist and porphyrin legend Martin Gouterman: https://doi.org/10.1002/anie.202012840.
