Plenary and Keynote Speakers
C Oliver Kappe
C. Oliver Kappe is Professor of Chemistry at the University of Graz (Austria) and Scientific Director of the Center for Continuous Flow Synthesis and Processing (CC FLOW) at the Research Center Pharmaceutical Engineering GmbH (RCPE).
Tanja Junkers graduated with a PhD degree in physical chemistry from Goettigen University in Germany in 2006, having worked on the determination of kinetic rate coefficients for radical reactions during polymerizations.
Shū Kobayashi studied at The University of Tokyo, receiving his Ph.D. in 1988 working under the direction of Professor T. Mukaiyama. Following an initial period as assistant professor, he was promoted to lecturer then associate professor at Science University of Tokyo (SUT).
Volker Hessel studied chemistry at Mainz University (PhD in organic chemistry, 1993). In 1994 he entered the Institut für Mikrotechnik Mainz GmbH. In 2002, Prof. Hessel was appointed Vice Director R&D at IMM and in 2007 as Director R&D.
Hélène Lebel received her PhD from Université de Montréal under the supervision of Prof. André B. Charette in 1998. She then joined the group of Eric N. Jacobsen at Harvard University as a NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow. She began her independent academic career at the Université de Montréal as an assistant professor in 1999, under a NSERC University Faculty Award.
Timothy Noël received his MSc degree (Industrial Chemical Engineering) in 2004 from the KaHo Sint-Lieven in Ghent. He then moved to Ghent University to obtain a PhD at the Laboratory for Organic and Bioorganic Synthesis under the supervision of Professor Johan Van der Eycken (2005-2009).
Karen Robertson completed her PhD at Imperial College London in 2012, focussing on targeting interconnected metal-organic framework (MOF) architectures through multi-podal ligand design. Since then her work has spanned synthetic and physical chemistry, materials science and engineering through positions at Clariant Oil Services, the University of Bath and the Max Planck Institute for Colloids and Interfaces.
