Matteo was born in Bologna (Italy) in 1994. After achieving his bachelor degree in Chemistry in Bologna he pursued the Master degree in the same city. Matteo defended his Master thesis in 2019 under the supervision of Professor P.G. Cozzi studying the synthesis of new coumarin derivatives and their use as photoredox catalysts. In the same year, driven by the passion for synthesis and photoredox catalysis he started his PhD under the supervision of Professor P. Melchiorre in ICIQ, Tarragona, where he studied the development of new photochemical methodologies for the synthesis of enantioenriched molecules. After achieving his PhD in 2022 Matteo joined Farmhispania, a CDMO company for drug research and manufacture. One year later he finally joined the Suero group in ICIQ. In his free time, Matteo likes to watch movies, read books and have a beer with his friends.
