Estefanía Gioria

Estefanía Gioria was born in Esperanza (Santa Fe – Argentina) in 1986. She received her B.S. in chemistry from the National University of the Littoral in 2011 where she worked on pyrroles functionalization and their use as dienophiles in Diels-Alder reactions in the Prof Pedro Mancini’s group.

She got a European grant to join the University of Valladolid where she attended the Master in Industrial and Synthetic Chemistry in 2011-2012. After that she started her doctoral studies under the supervisor of Prof. Pablo Espinet and Dr. Jesús Ma Martínez de Ilarduya financed by a FPU Spanish grant.

Her research is focused on the design and study of new ligands and their application in Pd catalyzed cross-coupling reactions to promote difficult processes.
