Christos Constantinides obtained his Ph.D. working under the supervision of Prof. Jeremy M. Rawson in the field of organic and main group radicals. Following his doctoral studies, he founded eHeterocycles Ltd. to commercialize highly specialized S,N-rich heterocyclic reagents. He returned to academia a few years later for postdoctoral studies at Vanderbilt University and North Carolina State University working under the supervision of Prof. Piotr Kaszynski and Prof. David Shultz on the magnetic, optical and transport properties of stable organic radicals.

Research Interests: Stable Organic Radicals, Main-Group Radicals, Molecular Magnetism, Zwitterionic Polyazaacenes
