Dario Pasini

Dario Pasini obtained his Ph.D. degree in Chemistry in 1997 from the University of Birmingham, U.K. (advisor: Fraser Stoddart, Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2016). After postdoctoral research at the University of California, Berkeley, U.S.A., in the group of Prof. Jean M. J. Fréchet (1997–1999), he joined the faculty of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Pavia in 2000, where he is now an Associate Professor (with National Qualification to Full Professor, Organic Chemistry, since Nov. 2014), and he develops new scientific approaches in the fields of organic, supramolecular, and polymeric materials. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry. He spent periods of research as visiting Professor with S. Matile (Geneva, CH), L. Shimizu (South Carolina, USA) and T. Swager (MIT, USA). He has been awarded a Gutenberg Chair from the University of Strasbourg (2020).
