Joanne Tan

Visiting PhD Student, University of Toronto

Hello! My name is Joanne Tan and I’m a visiting PhD student from Canada. I obtained my Bachelor of Science from the University of McMaster under the supervision of Prof. Dr. John F. Valliant where I worked on medicinal radiochemistry. I moved to Toronto to pursue my PhD with Prof. Dr. Andrei K. Yudin where I specialize in the synthesis of heteroatom-rich boron-containing molecules. During my stay in the Dixon group, I’m working on synthesizing nitrogen-based heterocycles using photocatalysis. In my spare time, I enjoy relaxing at home and baking all kinds of sweets!
