Giulio received his MSc in Pharmaceutical Chemistry from Università del Piemonte Orientale, Italy. During his undergraduate studies, he conducted research at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, Germany. His project focused on developing a flow method for the synthesis of a biological interesting fructosamine mimic. Currently, he is working at Syncom BV, in the Netherlands, under the supervision of Prof. R.M. Kellogg and Dr. M. Leeman. His research focuses on: development of a continuous process for deracemizations, identification of new compounds that can be deracemized through Viedma ripening and development of new methods of racemization.

Research Interests

Continuous-flow chemistry, organic synthesis, chirality, carbohydrate chemistry, fluorescence.
