Dr. Vsevolod A. Peshkov received his Diploma in Chemistry in 2008 from Lomonosov Moscow State University with Prof. Nikolay V. Lukashev. In 2009, he joined the group of Prof. Erik V. Van der Eycken at the University of Leuven (KU Leuven) as a doctoral student. He defended his doctoral thesis entitled “Synthesis of nitrogen-containing medium-sized rings fused with benzene or indole through transition metal-catalyzed carbocyclizations” in 2013. He then spent one year at the University of Pittsburgh working on several medicinal chemistry projects under Prof. Peter Wipf and Prof. Donna Huryn’s direction. In September 2014, he was appointed as an Associate Professor at Soochow University where he is leading a small team of young researchers. In August 2018, he became Assistant Professor at Nazarbayev University, Kazakhstan.
His most recent activity is devoted to the design and synthesis of novel organic photoluminescent materials and their optical properties assessment. In addition, his research group is active in the area of general synthetic methodology including the development of novel multicomponent reactions and diversity-oriented synthesis of heterocycles.
