About the speaker:
Kuangbiao received his B.S. degree from Sun Yat-sen University in 2013 and then moved to Emory University for doctoral studies. Under the supervision of Dr. Huw Davies, he developed high-throughput technology, predictive modeling and three catalyst systems for selective C–H bond functionalization. His work, including two Nature and one Nature Chemistry publications, was well recognized by the community. He received several prestigious awards, became permanent member of Reaxys Prize Club, and served as reviewer for JACS and other top journals. After receiving his Ph.D. degree in 2017, he was invited to join Abbvie, the top 5th pharmaceutical company around the world, as Senior Scientist, and now he is working on automated high-throughput synthesis and drug discovery.
