Dr Karim Bahou

Research Coordinator Chemistry


    Personal Statement

    Karim graduated from the University College London with a first-class honours MSci degree, which included a final-year project under the supervision of Prof. Stephen Caddick and Dr. Vijay Chudasama working on hydroacylation chemistry. Upon the completion of his undergraduate degree, he conducted his PhD guided by Prof. Chris Braddock at Imperial College London working towards the synthesis of marine algae-derived brominated natural products, ultimately focussing in olefin metathesis, which included a year based at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) under the supervision of Dr Adam Meyer and Dr G. Paul Savage. Subsequently, Karim re-joined the Braddock group in a post-doctoral research associate (PDRA) position to further investigate aspects of olefin metathesis. Karim then moved to The University of Liverpool to take up a Research Coordinator position in the group of Prof John Bower. Karim’s current research interests lie broadly in the area of asymmetric catalysis and C-N bond activation.
