Giorgio Olivo (born 1988) pursued his Master (2011-2012) and PhD studies (2012-2015) in Chemistry at “Sapienza” University of Rome under the supervision of Prof. Stefano Di Stefano. His research, at the interface of Organic and Coordination Chemistry, focused on oxidation processes mediated by nonheme Fe complexes, investigating structure-activity relationships, exploring different catalyst designs and investigating bioinorganic reaction mechanisms (Thesis title: Nonheme iron complexes as catalysts for non-activated C-H oxidation reactions). During his doctoral studies, he performed two research stays at university of Girona (Spain) and ESRF (France) for an overall period of 8 months. In 2016, he joined the group of Prof. M. Costas (QBIS) at University of Girona (Spain) as a Juan De la Cierva Postdoc fellow, where he explored the use of supramolecular interactions to control selectivity in C(sp3)-H oxidation reactions catalyzed by Fe and Mn complexes. In Girona, he worked also on a project on enantioselective C-H lactonization of aliphatic carboxylic acids. In 2021 he moved back to Rome (“La Sapienza” university), first as a Postdoc (assegno di ricerca, jan-nov 2021) and then as an Assistant Professor in Organic Chemistry (RTD-b, Nov 2021 to now).
