Brief introduction of the Speaker:
Dr. Chao Xu is a former student of this school. She stayed for two years as a postgraduate (MSc) student in Prof Shende Jiang’s group before moving to pursue a PhD with Prof Stephen Clark at the University of Glasgow on a CSC-Glasgow University Joint Scholarship in 2011. While at Glasgow Chao Xu has single handedly finished the total synthesis of a biologically active marine alkaloid (-)-nakadomarin A, which has very recently appeared in the Angewandte Chemie.
