Felipe Fantuzzi, PhD
Incoming Lecturer (Assistant Professor) @ University of Kent
Canterbury, UK - December 2021
Postdoctoral Researcher @ Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg
Felipe is a postdoctoral researcher at the Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg, Germany (hosts: Prof. Dr. Holger Braunschweig; Prof. Dr. Bernd Engels). His research is based on the application and development of modern computational quantum chemistry methods to investigate the electronic structure, bonding situation, and mechanistic aspects of novel main-group and organometallic compounds. His motivation goes from fundamentals to applications in distinct fields, including metal and metal-free catalysis, small-molecule activation, bioactive and biomimetic compounds, materials science and optoelectronic devices, and astrochemistry. In December 2021, Felipe will start his independent career at the University of Kent in Canterbury, UK, in the School of Physical Sciences.
