Prof. Dr. Olga García Mancheño is professor for organic chemistry at the University of Münster (WWU).
She obtained her PhD in Chemistry in 2005 at the University Autonomous of Madrid under the supervision of Prof. J.C. Carretero. After her postdoc in the group of Prof. C. Bolm at RWTH Aachen, she carried out her habilitation at the WWU Münster. In 2013, she was appointed as professor for organic chemistry at the University of Regensburg and, in 2017, to her current position at the University of Münster. Her research aims at developing new, efficient synthetic methodologies in organic chemistry, with especial focus on the design of novel catalytic systems and their application in catalysis, including photocatalysis and asymmetric anion-binding catalysis, and late-stage functionalization towards valuable small and drug building-blocks.
