Chemistry of Natural Systems

Dr Barrow’s research is focused around the chemistry that is expressed in natural systems. His research group focuses on the field of chemical ecology where they examine the nexus that exists between naturally occurring chemicals and the behaviour they produce in whole organisms; bioprospecting, where they isolate and identify biologically active natural products; and organic synthesis as it pertains to developing a greater understanding of the chemistry in the natural systems we explore.
