Giacomo graduated in Chemistry in 2010 from the Università degli Studi in Milan and, in 2012, he obtained his Master’s degree in Organic Chemistry from the same institution. His undergraduate thesis projects were conducted under the supervision of Prof. Dalla Croce and Prof. La Rosa. In October 2012 he joined the Chemical Synthesis CDT programme at the University of Bristol, where he undertook his doctoral studies with Dr John F. Bower. His research focused on the development of novel methodologies for selective C-C bond formation via C-H activation. In June 2017, after successfully defending his Ph.D. thesis, he started a postdoctoral appointment in the group of Prof. Paolo Melchiorre at ICIQ in Tarragona, where he is currently investigating enantioselective photochemical transformations. In his spare time outside of the lab, Giacomo enjoys football (both playing and supporting), basketball and an ice-cold beer with friends.
