Aidan Slattery was born in Cork, Ireland. He obtained his B.Sc(Hons) degree in Chemistry of Pharmaceutical compounds in 2019 from University College Cork. His final year project was carried out on the topic of α-diazo-β-cyanoamides in asymmetric catalysis under the supervision of Prof. Anita Maguire. Following his undergraduate he joined Snapdragon Chemistry Inc., Waltham, MA, USA. His work there involved the characterization of the Snapdragon IRIS photoreactor, as well as working with clients on process intensification through flow chemistry. Currently, he is a Ph.D. candidate at the Van’t Hoff Institute for Molecular Sciences under the supervision of Prof. Timothy Noël. He is now working on the development of a high-throughput experimentation platform for the photocatalytic functionalization of organic molecules.
