Dr. Juan Vicente Alegre RequenaResearch Scientist
Ph.D., University of Zaragoza, 2017
Juan obtained his B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Alicante (Spain) and his Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry from the University of Zaragoza (Spain) under the supervision of Dr. Raquel P. Herrera and Dr. María E. Marqués López in December 2017. During his Ph.D., he mainly worked as an experimental chemist focused on developing asymmetric organocatalytic reactions. He also employed computational chemistry to complement different experimental mechanistic studies. In March 2018, he joined the Paton group at Colorado State University as a postdoctoral researcher, where he is working on computational mechanistic studies and machine learning predictions. In March 2021, he is going to become part of the Kim group as a research scientist, where he will mainly study mechanisms of reactions with marked industrial interest. In his free time, he enjoys hanging out with friends, playing all types of competitive sports (especially soccer) and board games.
