After obtaining his PhD at the Université catholique de Louvain under the supervision of Prof. István E. Markó in 2007, Nuno Maulide pursued a postdoctoral position in the group of Prof. Barry M. Trost at Stanford University. In 2009, he started his independent career at the Max-Planck Institut für Kohlenforschung and only 4 years later, in 2013 he became a Full Professor at the University of Vienna. His research interests are broadly spread in the field of organic chemistry and include the development of new reaction methods, the total synthesis of natural compounds and medicinal chemistry-driven investigations. He is a member of the Board of Editors for Organic Syntheses (2018) as well as an Associate Editor of Organic Letters (2018) and JACS AU (2020). Beyond his scientific endeavors, for which he received 3 ERC grants and multiple awards like the Tetrahedron Young Investigator Award (2020), he is also heavily involved in knowledge transfer to the public. For his great conveyance of Science, also coupled with his other passion, the piano, he was appointed Scientist of the Year in Austria (2018).
