About Me

Dr. Christos Constantinides

Christos P. Constantinides is currently an Assistant Professor of Organic Chemistry within the Department of Natural Sciences at the University of Michigan - Dearborn. He completed his BSc degree at the University of Cyprus, majoring in Chemistry. Subsequently, he pursued his doctoral studies at the University of Cambridge, working under the guidance of Prof. Jeremy M. Rawson in the field of organic and main group radicals, leading to the attainment of his PhD degree.

Following the completion of his doctoral program, Dr. Constantinides embarked on an entrepreneurial venture by founding eHeterocycles Ltd., a company focused on the commercialization of highly specialized S,N-rich heterocyclic reagents. After some time in the industry, he returned to academia to engage in postdoctoral research at both Vanderbilt University and North Carolina State University. During his postdoctoral work, he conducted research under the mentorship of Prof. Piotr Kaszynski and Prof. David Shultz, focusing on the magnetic, optical, and transport properties of stable organic radicals.

In 2017, Dr. Constantinides assumed the position of Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan - Dearborn, where he continues to contribute to the field of organic chemistry. He has an impressive publication record, including numerous journal articles and authored book chapters. Moreover, he has presented his research findings at various international conferences, further establishing his reputation in the domain of synthetic and applied heterocyclic organic chemistry.
