Armando Albert Flores
MPhil student at Dr. Boss and Dr. Barker group
Reino Unido, 2021
Armando was born in Madrid in 1999. He earned a degree in Chemistry from the Autonomous University of Madrid in 2021, with an overall mark of 9.64/10. That year, he was awarded by the Autonomous University of Madrid with the Extraordinary Award in his Chemistry Degree for achieving the best academic record of the degree. During his undergraduate degree, he spent an Erasmus year in the University of Cambridge (2019-2020), where he was awarded with the Lord Todd Prize and the Graduate Scholarship for his outstanding academic record. After his Erasmus year, he joined the Organic Chemistry Department of the Autonomous University of Madrid as a research fellow student while he finished his last year of the undergraduate degree. As a fellow student, he worked on asymmetric organocatalysis, trying to obtain enantiomerically pure compounds by using novel bifunctional organocatalysts.
Currently, he is coursing a Master of Philosophy in Chemistry in the University of Cambridge, funded by the "LaCaixa" Foundation. He teaches inorganic chemistry courses to undergraduate students and works on bioinorganic chemistry. His project intends to develop artificial metalloenzymes that catalyse asymmetric reactions that will eventually provide pharmacological or bioactive compounds in a low-cost and green manner.
He speaks Spanish and English.
