Dr Roy Lavendomme

Roy Lavendomme was born in Belgium in 1990. He obtained his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in chemistry at the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB, Belgium). Then, he carried out a PhD in organic and supramolecular chemistry at the ULB under the supervision of Prof. Ivan Jabin and Prof. Michel Luhmer from 2012–2016. His PhD research focused on the development of new and rational tools for the selective modification of polyphenolic platforms (mostly calixarenes) and the development of calixarene-based molecular containers. In January 2017, he joined the group of Prof. Jonathan R. Nitschke at the University of Cambridge as a postdoctoral researcher supported by the Wiener-Anspach Foundation.
