Demonstrated through the publication of a special journal issue (Tetrahedron, as Guest Editor) on the development and application of highly active and selective palladium catalysis, with contributions from internationally-leading scientists (ca. 30 papers). Professional standing is exemplified by the role played in the organisation of an RSC-supported Dalton Discussion 12 meeting focused on catalyticC-H and C-X functionalisation (Durham 2010). This joint Organic Division/Dalton Division venture brought together the complementary interests of the inorganic and organic chemistry research communities. I led a network meeting bringing together internationally-leading scientists working in the area of organometallic CO-releasing molecules (Kavli International Centre, May 2011). I helped to coordinate a ‘XAFS for Catalysis’ meeting at the Diamond Synchrotron in Sept. 2013 (with EPSRC Dial-a-Molecule and UK Catalysis Hub).
