Vincent Gandon received his Ph.D. in 2002 from the University of Reims (group of Prof. Jan Szymoniak). After a postdoctoral stay at the University of California, Riverside, in the group of Prof. Guy Bertrand, he joined the faculty of the University Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris in 2003, as Assistant Professor in the laboratory of Prof. Max Malacria.
In 2009, he was appointed full Professor at the Paris-Sud University with a Research Excellence Chair. Since 2017, he is also affiliated to the Laboratory of Molecular Catalysis of the Ecole Polytechnique.
His research interests are the development of homogeneous catalyzed processes for organic chemistry and the study of reaction mechanisms by computational chemistry.
Vincent has received the Jean Normant Prize (2012) and the Jean-Marie Lehn Prize (2017) of the organic chemistry division of the French Chemical Society. He has been a junior member of the Institut Universtitaire de France (IUF) from 2012 to 2017 and a junior distinguished member of the French Chemical Society for the 2014-2019 period.
