Jean-Luc Renaud obtained his Ph.D. degree in 1998 under the supervision of
Aubert and Malacria (Paris VI University). He was a Lavoisier Postdoctoral fellow in
1999 with Lautens (University of Toronto) then moved to the University of Louvain-
La-Neuve in the team of Prof. Riant. In 2000, he was appointed as Maître de
Conférences at the University of Rennes and accepted a Professor position at the
University of Caen in 2008. The research interests focus on organometallic catalysis
(Fe, Co, Cu, Ru, Ir) and their application in fine chemical synthesis (hydrogenation,
cycloaddition and coupling reactions).
