Assistant Professor (Tenure Track)
Small chiral organic molecules can be used to catalyse innovative synthetic transformations. We can use covalent or H-bonding enantioselective catalysis to access new chiral bioactive ingredients
We use specific catalysts and photocatalysts to engage CO2 in novel stereoselective synthetic transformations. We create useful molecules from waste materials in a sustainable manner
Photocatalysis allows unique reactivity pathways, often unaccesible under polar chemistry. We use light to develop unprecedented reactivity and new molecular scaffolds
I am interested in the development of novel organo- and photo-catalytic systems to provide sustainable synthetic methods.
Currently, I am focused on development of novel organophotoredox processes.
I am working on implementing novel visible light-driven reactions. Currently, I am trying to trap carbon dioxide into biorelevant scaffolds.
I am involved in the development of novel organic photocatalytic processes. I am now working on synthesis of reactive substrates to trap carbon dioxide using new photocatalytic systems.
I am interested in the exploitation of organophotoredox catalysis for the preparation of synthetically relevant intermediates through innovative methodologies.
I am currently working on the development of novel organo-photocatalysts to employ them in novel synthetic methods.
I am working on a collaborartive project that focuses on the fixation of CO2 by means of photoredox and electrophotocatalysis
I am working on light-driven functionalizations of benzene bioisosters by means of organo-photocatalysts.
I am studying new heterocyclic organo-photocatalysts for applications into synthetic photoredox catalysis.
I am currently working on light-driven 3+2 cycloadditions.
