Redouane Beniazza was born in Beni Mellal (Morocco) in 1981. He received his PhD in Organic chemistry from University of Bordeaux under the supervision of Prof. Yannick Landais on the synthesis of silylated cycloheptatrienes and their desymmetrisation toward the synthesis of sugar mimics.
After carrying out post-doctoral research with Prof. Fabrice Chemla at Pierre and Marie Curie University – Paris 6 (2011-2012) on the Organometallic reactivity and catalysis for organic synthesis, he took a position as Associate Researcher at the Institut des Sciences Moléculaires (ISM) – UMR 5255, Bordeaux University (2013-2017). He is the co-author of more than 30 peer-reviewed publications.
Redouane Beniazza research interests focus on synthetic organic chemistry, asymmetric synthesis, radical chemistry, with a special emphasis on organometallic chemistry and the application in the synthesis of organic molecules. Recently his interest was also extended to inorganic chemistry. He has several collaborations at national and international level: MIT, UCA Nice-France, Polytechnic Montréal, Arisona State University, EPFL, CNRS, USF Tampa, etc.
