Welcoming Dr S.S.V Ramasastry to the OBC Editorial Board

We are delighted to announce that Dr S.S.V Ramasastry has joined the OBC Editorial Board!

About Ramasastry:

Dr Ramasastry obtained his Ph.D. in Chemical Sciences in 2005 from the Department of Organic Chemistry, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore (India), under the supervision of Prof. A. Srikrishna. He then pursued postdoctoral studies with Prof. Carlos F. Barbas, III at The Scripps Research Institute, San Diego (USA). After briefly working in industry, he became Assistant Professor in 2011 and then Associate Professor in 2017 at the Department of Chemical Sciences, IISER Mohali.

His research interests include the development of sustainable and atom economic reactions via organophosphine catalysis, palladium-catalyzed allylic alkylation reactions, one-pot cascade transformations employing sulfur ylides, and applying these strategies in the synthesis of bioactive natural products and pharmaceutically important compounds.
