Marcel Schorpp

I was born in 1991 near to the source of the river Danube and received my Abitur from the Fürstenberg Gymnasium Donaueschingen in 2010.

I started studying Chemistry at the Albert-Ludwigs Universität Freiburg in the same year. During my Master's studies I went to the University of Oxford to work with Prof. José Goicoechea for a couple of months. In 2020 I completed my Ph.D. studies at ALU Freiburg under the supervision of Prof. Ingo Krossing. 
After a short post-doctoral stay at the same group I moved to Heidelberg in the same year to work with Prof. Lutz Greb.

I subsequently moved to Oxford in Nov 2022 to work as a Feodor-Lynen postdoctoral researcher under the joint supervision of Prof. Simon Aldridge (University of Oxford, UK) and Cameron Jones (Monash University, Australia) until I received a call to the Univerisity of Regensburg (a few hundred km downstream of the river Danube) where I have started as tenure-track Assistant Professor for Inorganic Chemistry in April 2023.

Outside of the office/lab I enjoy playing with my daughter and trying to catch up on sleep (whenever my daughter lets me).

Ph.D. student

Tejaswinee Gangber

I come from the beautiful state of Chhatisgarh in India. I graduated with BS-MS dual degree from Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Bhopal (IISERB). Before moving to Regensburg, I was working at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research Hyderabad, India.

I am currently exploring the structurally constrained highly reactive phosphorus cations with open coordinating sites exhibiting triggerable reactivities and their applications in Main Group Catalysis.

Apart from working in the lab, I like to go for a run.

I believe that good music and a cup of tea can make the day. 

Research assistant

Moritz Kaufmann

I am currently working on synthetic routes to perfluorinated boryl systems and subsequent analysis of their behavior. Herein I am also gaining insights in cutting-edge FLP/FRP chemistry as well as experience in both synthetic and computational chemistry.

I also love to see things burning in the fumehood [in a controlled manner ;) ] as much as i like bavarian beverages and dishes [both in a less controlled manner].

Research assistant

Valentin Ernest

I am currently doing my Bachelor’s degree in chemistry at the University of Regensburg. I completed my Bachelor's thesis in the group, where I was investigating structurally constrained phosphorus cations. Now, I'm excited to rejoin the team and continuing to learn about the world of inorganic chemistry.
