Antonio M. Rodríguez García
Antonio M Rodríguez (1986) graduated in Chemistry from UCLM in 2009 as Valedictorian of his class. After selecting UCLM as his choice of graduate school, he pursued a master degree in Sustainable Chemistry. After receiving the prestigious FPU fellowship from the MEC, he is currently developing his PhD in a microwave-assisted system in order to monitor different chemical reactions by nanoliter NMR-spectroscopy and, at the same time, expanding the knowledge on the field of Computational Chemistry towards a unified understanding of the processes involved. During his PhD, Antonio has stayed at the Universidad de Zaragoza in the group of Catálisis Heterogénea en síntesis orgánicas selectivas under the supervision of Dr. Jose Ignacio García Laureiro undergoing a thoughtful and deep analysis of computational methods for asymmetric syntheses, and particularly the mechanistic and molecular modeling aspects. He has also developed his skills in the field of Synthetic Organic Chemistry, in the University of Durham under the supervision of Prof. Ian R. Baxendale.
Antonio is really fond in all types of chemistry, but his world revolves around Organic Chemistry. When not doing chemistry (which, not surprisingly, isn’t that often) he enjoys running marathons, surfing the web, hanging out with his friends and especially talking every single person he knows into buying a Mac.
