Armen Panossian

Armen PanossianArmen Panossian carried out his studies at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Paris and the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris VI). He obtained his PhD under the supervision of Dr. Angela Marinetti, at the Institut de Chimie des Substances Naturelles (Gif-sur-Yvette), working on the development of new, phosphorus-based chiral organocatalysts. After a post-doctoral stay at the ICIQ in the group of Dr. Anton Vidal-Ferran and a temporary position as assistant professor at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (group of Dr. Eric Rose), he joined the CNRS as Chargé de Recherche in the group of Dr. Frédéric Leroux. His main research topics focus on the control of chirality, the chemistry of organolithiums and the organic chemistry of heteroelements such as phosphorus, boron or fluorine.

As part of his Fellowship, Armen Panossian will be working on the project AxLAB — Axially Chiral Lewis Acids and Bases for Frustrated Lewis Pair-type Reactivity.
