Supervision

During the course of my postdoctoral work I have trained and mentored several undergraduate and PhD students, “de facto” acting as secondary supervisor:

MSc. Tom Wirtanen, MSc. Mikko Mäkelä, Mr. Otto Laukkanen – Dr. Helaja’s group (3–12 months), leading to the publication: Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2013, 52, 11835–11839.

MSc. Mikko Muuronen – Dr. Helaja’s group (2 months), leading to the publication: Organometallics 2012, 31, 4320−4330.

MSc. Teemu Niemi – Laboratory Inorganic Chemistry (24 months), leading to the publications: Chem. Eur J. 2016, 22, 10355–10359 and Chem. Eur J. 2014, 20, 8867–8871.

Collaborations

During my postdoctoral training, I was responsible to support the multidisciplinary character of my research by attracting international and internal collaborators, coordinating their contributions with my own:

 Dr. Sami Heikkinen (Head NMR engineer & lecturer, University of Helsinki, Finland): NMR mechanistic studies of our catalytic processes-/systems. (Since 2012).

 Dr. Israel Fernandez (Lecturer, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain): DFT calculations and theoretical studies of our catalytic processes-/systems. (Since 2013)

Awards

2003 EPSRC, Postgraduate Scholarship in Organic Chemistry.
2002 Spanish Council of Education and Culture, Undergraduate Grant.
