🎓 Resume

Antonio Pulcinella was born in 1996 in Roma. He received his BSc in Chemistry (cum laude) in 2018 at the University of Roma Tor Vergata and carried out his thesis at IRBM Science Park Spa. Antonio completed his Master in Chemistry (cum laude) in 2020 in the context of the first edition of the Double Degree Programme between the JLU University of Giessen and the University of Padova. During the Master Thesis he worked in the group of Prof. Dr. Schreiner on the synthesis of novel 2-deoxy-C-glycoside amino acids. Currently, he is a Ph.D. candidate at the UvA under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Noël. He is working on the continuous-flow C-H activation of aliphatic scaffolds promoted by photochemistry and/or electrochemistry.
