Paul A. Clarke began his career at the University of Bath where he obtained his B.S. degree (Hons) in 1993. He remained at Bath to study the utility and mechanism of intramolecular dioxirane epoxidation reactions under the supervision of Dr. A. Armstrong. In 1996, he obtained his Ph.D. degree and moved to Florida State University where he spent two years working with Prof. R. A. Holton on the synthesis and functionalisation of taxane ring systems. In 1999, he returned to the UK to work on a carbenoid insertion approach to peptide synthesis with Professor C. J. Moody at the University of Exeter. In September 1999, he was appointed as a Lecturer in Organic Chemistry at the University of Nottingham. In January 2006, he moved to his current position as a Senior Lecturer in Organic Chemistry at the University of York. His research interests include the total synthesis of biologically active natural products, particularly sesquiterpenes and tetrahydropyran-containing polyketides and prebiotic chemistry.
