Karthik defends his PhD!
24th February 2017
Huge congratulations go to Karthik, who has successfully defended his PhD thesis, Ruthenium-Catalyzed C-H Functionalization of (Hetero)arenes. He is the first student to emerge from our group with a PhD!
The opponent for the occassion was Prof. Victor Snieckus from Queen’s University in Kingston, ON. We thank him enormously for crossing “The Pond” to be with us for this special occassion, for his fascinating lecture and the very interesting discussion during the defence.
Our thanks also go to the committee members: Prof. Jan Bergman (Karolinska Institute), Dr. Daniel Strand (Lund University), Dr. Eszter Borbas (Uppsala University) and the reserve member Dr. Anders Thapper (Uppsala University).
