Massive congratulations to Carina, who defended her PhD thesis New Arylation Strategies Based on Organomain Group Reactivity! Carina becomes the second student to emerge from our group with a doctorate.
The opponent for the occasion was Professor Brenton LeBoef from the University of Rhode Island in the US. We thank him enormously for agreeing to cross the Atlantic to join us, to give a wonderful lecture and provide such engaging opposition for Carina.
We are additionally grateful to the committee members for the day: Prof. Ebbe Nordlander from Lund University, Associate Prof. Peter Diner from KTH and Dr Christine Dyrager from Uppsala University’s very own Department of Chemistry at BMC. (A nod also goes out to Prof. Berit Olofsson of Stockholm University who was, unfortunately, unable to join us.)
