About

Dr. Kanagasooriam is a graduate  of the National University of Singapore and of Cambridge University (Biochemistry). Her research work was first in the area of microbial gene fusions and the phosphoenolpyruvate phosphotranferase system. This was followed by a PGCE from Christchurch College Canterbury. She then did her PhD training (Physical Organic Chemistry) at Kent University under the supervision of Professor Andrew Williams in the synthesis of polyamine starburst dendrimers and benzoyl catechols (fragments of calixarenes) as models of the intramolecular active sites of catalytic systems. Studies on selected alpha nucleophiles as models of hydrolytic enzymes were also carried out and Hammett plots used to ascertain details of mechanism and the relationship between nucleophilicity and basicity. Dr. Kanagasooriam has been teaching in the School of Physical Sciences since 1999. Before this, she was a Newscaster (anchor woman) for Media Corp formerley the Singapore Broadcasting Corporation.
