Dr Mikhail Kabeshov

mikhailMikhail earned his Masters of Science Degree at Lomonosov Moscow State University (2000-05). In the latter two years of his study, under the supervision of of Prof I. Beletskaya, he worked on the development of novel methods for dichalcogenides addition to multiple carbon-carbon bonds assisted by NMR mechanistic studies under supervision.

In July 2005 Mikhail moved to the University of Glasgow and joined Prof Pavel Kocovsky’s group as a PhD student (funded by the University and ORSAS grant). During his PhD Mikhail was involved with three organic chemistry projects: artificial C-nucleoside synthesis, enantioselective organocatalysis and transition metal catalysed allyl transfer methodology. After his PhD, Mikhail moved to the University of Oxford joining Prof Timothy Donohoe’s group as a Postdoctoral Research Associate. Here he worked on developing a general and practical method of making various types of heterocycles from readily available alkenes for medicinal chemistry projects (in close collaboration with GSK) (2008-11). In 2011 he moved to Prof Andrei Malkov’s group at Loughborough University as a Research Associate where he is currently working on the kinetic resolution of chiral allyltrichlorosilanes and allylboronates in allylation reactions. Since 2008 Mikhail has been developing his computational chemistry expertise and how in silico methods of different levels and complexity can assist synthetic projects explaining and predicting their results. Mikhail joined the Ley group as a Postdoctoral Research Associate (funded by the EPSRC Critical Mass grant) at the beginning of September 2013.
