Postdoctoral Research Associate
I grew up in Varanasi (Banaras/Kashi) India where my high school classes and then interest in Chemistry started. From there I went on to get my Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry at Loyola College Vijayawada with the class of 2010 and Master’s in Organic Chemistry from Banaras Hindu University (B.H.U) Varanasi in 2012 respectively. I obtained a Ph.D. degree (2017) from the Institut für Organische und Biomolekulare Chemie, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen (Stadt, die Wissen schafft), Germany. During my doctoral studies, I designed and studied several synthetic methods for Transition-Metal Catalysis. Among which the metal of my choice seemed to be less-expensive “Ruthenium”. My dissertation focused on developing novel synthetic methods using “Ruthenium(II)-Catalyzed C-N, C-O and C-C Formations via C-H Activation”
I am now working as a postdoctoral research associate in the Abolhasani Lab to develop and construct a Microfluidic Synthesis Platform available for industrial chemists using screening and optimization of different ligands in TM-Catalysis for Chemical Reactions.
