Christoforos G. Kokotos is an Assistant Professor of Organic Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece, with undergraduate studies at the University of Athens, PhD studies at the University of Bristol, UK (Prof. Varinder Aggarwal) and post-doctoral studies at Princeton University, USA (Prof. David W. C. MacMillan). His research interests focus on the development of novel asymmetric organocatalytic methodologies, green and sustainable organocatalytic oxidations, Photocatalysis, their application in the synthesis of pharmaceuticals, compounds of biological importance and natural products and the study of the mechanisms of organic transformations employing modern techniques, like HRMS. He is co-author of 71 peer-reviewed papers, 4 book chapters, 2 patents, >40 presentations in conferences. He is the recipient of prestigious awards, like the Hildergard-Zervas Award, Academy of Athens (2016 and 2018), JSP fellowship for the Burgenstock Conference (2016), Young Investigators Workshop (3 times representing Greece, 2014, 2017 and 2018) and ACS Young Academic Investigators Award (2014, representing Europe).
