Vincent Gandon
 was born in Soissons, France, in 1973. He received his Master 2 degree in Chemistry in 1999 and his Ph.D. in 2002 from the University of Reims Champagne Ardenne (group of Prof. Jan Szymoniak). After a postdoctoral stay at the University of California, Riverside, in the group of Prof. Guy Betrand, he joined the faculty of the University Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris in 2003, as Maître de Conférences in the laboratory of Prof. Max Malacria. In 2008 he received his HDR diploma (Habilitation to conduct research), and in 2009, he was appointed full Professor at the University of Paris-sud with a research excellency chair. Since 2012, Vincent is a junior member of the Institut Universitaire de France (IUF). His research interests are in the field of organic synthesis with an emphasis on the discovery of cobalt-, gold-, platinum-, and gallium-catalyzed reactions, and on mechanistic studies by DFT computations. On March 26 2013, he received the "enseignant-chercheur" prize of the Organic Chemistry Division (DCO) of the French Chemical Society (SCF).
