Bio:

A Holder of a Carnegie Fellowship, Willie obtained his PhD at the University of Glasgow under Sir Ralph Raphael, before moving to the University of Stirling as an independent ICI Research Fellow. In 1975, he joined the group of Sir Derek Barton at Imperial College as a Schering-Plough Fellow. Two years later, he moved with Sir Derek to France and was appointed to the C.N.R.S, first as “Attaché de Recherches” then as “Chargé de Recherches”. In 1983, he returned to Imperial College as a Lecturer and was promoted to a Readership in 1991. In 1993 he moved to University College London as the first Alexander Williamson Professor of Chemistry, a Chair he occupied until his retirement in September 2012. He has remained an Emeritus Professor at University College.
