Curriculum Vitae

Tobias A. Schaub was born in Erlangen, Germany, and received his M.Sc. degree from the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg. In 2017 he completed his Ph.D. under the supervision of Prof. Milan Kivala. After postdoctoral research with Prof. Ramesh Jasti at the University of Oregon (USA), he moved to the Ruprecht-Karls-University Heidelberg, where he started his independent career as a junior research group leader. With an educational background of organic synthetic chemistry, his research activities are currently centered in the field of strain-promoted reactions to construct contorted π-systems with different dimensionalities. An important aspect of this research program is the development novel synthetic methodologies for the time- and waste-economical preparation of macrocyclic π-electron systems.
