About Yannick Landais
Yannick Landais was born in Angers (France) in 1962. He received his PhD in chemistry from University of Orsay (Paris XI) under the supervision of Dr. Jean-Pierre Robin.
After carrying out post-doctoral work with Prof. Ian Fleming at Cambridge University (1988-1990), he took a position of Maître-Assistant at the University of Lausanne (1990-1997). He was then appointed at the University of Bordeaux, where he is currently Professor of organic chemistry. His research interests are in synthetic organic chemistry, asymmetric synthesis, radical chemistry, with a special emphasis on organosilicon chemistry and the application in total synthesis of natural products. Recently his interests also extended to polymer chemistry using organocatalysis.
Since 2013, he is the President of the French-Japanese chemical Association (http://fjs.crihan.fr/FJS/Bienvenue.html). He is a member of the International Advisory Board of the “European Journal of Organic Chemistry”.
