In 2009, Jianguo obtained a BSc degree in Safety Engineering from Henan Polytechnic University in China, where he also was received an Outstanding Student scholarship in 2006 and 2008. He then earned two MSc degrees in chemical engineering: one from the University of Science and Technology of China (2010) and the other from Chinese Academy of Sciences at the Guangzhou Institute of Eneergy Conversion (2012). At the latter, he was awarded the Guangzhou Elite Scholarship to study abroad.
Between 2013 and 2017, Jianguo carried out his PhD work in the group of Prof. Pher Andersson at Stockholm University’s Department of Organic Chemistry. There he specialised in transition metal-catalysed reactions with a focus on asymmetric hydrogenation.
Jianguo joined our group as a postdoc in April 2018. His work concerned catalytic C-H functionalisation methodology.
