Professor Richard C D Brown is Professor of Organic Chemistry within Chemistry at the University of Southampton.

Richard Brown received a first class honours degree in chemistry from the University of Southampton in 1990. He remained at Southampton for postgraduate studies under the guidance of Professor Kocienski F.R.S., obtaining his Ph.D. in 1994 for his thesis 'Furan Oxidation Applied to the Synthesis of Salinomycin'.  With a  move to the University of California Berkeley in 1994 to take up a NATO postdoctoral fellowship in Professor Clayton Heathcock’s research group, his synthetic efforts switched from complex polyether ionophores to alkaloids, specifically the syntheses of the alkaloids petrosin C and petrosin D. On his return to the UK in 1996, he took up a six-month sabbatical at Pfizer Central Research before being awarded a Royal Society University Research Fellowship, also in 1996, to join the faculty at the University of Southampton.  He was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2004 and to Professor in 2010.  He is currently deputy head of Chemistry for Research.
