Dr Anastasios Polyzos was awarded his PhD in 2006 from La Trobe University and appointed to Research Fellow at the Australian National research agency, CSIRO. In 2008 he pursued post-doctoral research at University of Cambridge under guidance of Professor Steven V. Ley FRS.
In 2011 he returned to Australia and lead the flow chemistry and catalysis group at CSIRO in Australia. He began is independent career in 2015 at the University of Melbourne as Senior Lecturer.
His research interests include the development of new methods and enabling technologies for organic synthesis, flow chemistry, photocatalysis and C-H activation.
