Assistant Professor (Tenure Track)
Small organic molecules can be used to catalyse innovative synthetic transformations. We can use covalent or H-bonding catalysis depending by scope and substrates
We use chiral molecules to engage organic substrates in novel stereoselective synthetic methods. We create 3-D molecular architectures in an enantioselective 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 for the efficient construction of complex molecules with high optical purity.
I am interested in the development of new photocatalytic processes. We study the mechanistic aspects at the bases of diverse light-driven reactions towards microfluidic applications.
My PhD project deals with the construction of complex molecular architectures using light. We use carbonyls to make biologically relevant scaffolds.
I am currently working on the development of novel stereoselective CO₂ fixation methods. We can make useful chiral carbamates using renewable sources.
I am working on novel visible-light-driven processes. I am taking care on the mechanistic aspects of these transformations that are used to construct bioactive molecules.
