Bio

Ulrich Fekl received his PhD (summa cum laude) from the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg (Germany) for work on inorganic reaction mechanisms under high pressure. As an undergraduate student he had spent several months on an ERASMUS fellowship at Imperial College (London, UK) and later, as a graduate student on a DAAD graduate exchange fellowship, at the University of Washington (USA). In 2000 he moved to the University of Washington in Seattle (USA) to work with Professor Karen Goldberg on novel platinum(II) and platinum(IV) systems for alkane C-H bond activation. This work has been influential on the field and is highly cited. In 2003 he took up a faculty position at the University of Toronto. Ulrich Fekl received tenure at the University of Toronto in 2008. His current research interests include synthesis of diamond-like materials with novel properties and the study of useful organometallic reactions, using both experimental and computational techniques.
