My name is Venkatesh Bollabathini, and I am a PhD fellow in Organic Chemistry at the University of Stavanger (UiS), working under the supervision of Prof. Kåre Bredeli Jørgensen. My research at UiS is mainly focusing on novel synthetic methods for Pillararenes. Previously, I received my master’s degree in Chemistry in 2018 from the University of Siena, Italy and did research as a fellow (2018-2020) at IIT in the area of nanomaterials for biomedical applications.
