Sébastien Comesse received his PhD in 2001 from the University of Pierre et Marie Curie (France) under the guidance of Dr. Catherine Kadouri. He has worked on the development of new beta-amino alcohols bearing vinyl and alkynylsilane moieties and their use in iminium chemistry. After a first post-doctoral position in Dr. Robert Grossman’s group in University of Kentucky (2001-2002, USA) focused on phosphorus-catalyzed Michael reaction, he came back for one year in the University of Pierre et Marie Curie for a second post-doctoral research in heterocyclic chemistry. His third and last post-doctoral position in Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique (2003-2004, Gif-sur-Yvette, France) was centered on 20,20-difluorocatharanthine (vinflunine®) in collaboration with Pierre Fabre Médicament. He then became Assistant Professor (2005) and Associate Professor (2009) in the University of Le Havre. In 2011 he spent 6 months as visiting Professor in the Laboratory of Pr. Jon Antilla (University of South Florida, USA) working on the synthesis of new spiro-ligands. His scientific interests include N-acyliminium chemistry and development of tandem/domino processes for the synthesis of N-heterocyclic compounds.
