Meet the Editor
Born in Brussels, Thierry Ollevier obtained his B.Sc. and Ph.D. at the Université de Namur, Belgium, and was Postdoctorate Fellow at the Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium under István E. Markó (1997), NATO Postdoctorate Fellow at Stanford University under Barry M. Trost (1998–2000), then Postdoctorate fellow at the Université de Montréal under André B. Charette (2000–2001).
After being appointed as an Assistant Professor in 2001 at Université Laval, he became an Associate and is currently Full Professor. Current research in his group aims at designing novel catalysts, developing catalytic reactions and applying these methods to chemical synthesis. He is active in the areas of Lewis acids, asymmetric catalysis, and synthetic green chemistry. He has served as an Associate Editor of RSC Advances since 2015 and was admitted as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (2016).
