Dr. Stefan Roesner - Shipman Group

Stefan Roesner

Stefan Roesner received his Diploma in chemistry from Philipps-University Marburg, Germany in 2010. He moved to the UK and completed a PhD in organic chemistry with Prof. Varinder Aggarwal at the University of Bristol in 2014. After postdoctoral studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology under the supervision of Prof. Stephen Buchwald he returned in 2016 to the UK to become Senior Research Fellow in the Shipman group.
