Curriculum vitaeResume CV

Alberto Fraile received his B.Sc. in Chemistry from the Universidad Autónoma of Madrid (Spain) (1989-1994). Then, he joined the group of Prof. Jose Luis García Ruano at the same University, and obtained his M.Sc. in 1997 with an UAM Master’s fellowship. In 2003, he finished his Ph.D. thesis focused on the studies of asymmetric [3+2] cycloadditions of sulfinilfuranones and several dipoles with the highest qualification (“Summa Cum Laude”). During his PhD. participated in the development of the research project: “Synthesis of heterocyclic compounds” supported by Janssen-Cilag (1999-2001). Between 2002 and 2008 he was the responsible researcher in the development of the research project: “Studies on improving intermediate synthesis of several drugs” supported by Sanofi-Aventis. In 2011, he carried out a post-doctoral stay in Denmark (one year) in the group of Prof. Karl Anker Jørgensen, with a research contract from Aarhus University, working in the area of organocatalysis. During this stay, he developed and took part in different projects aimed to study different organocatalytic processes that led to tree papers (1 Angew. Chem. and 2 Chem. Eur. J.). In 2012, he went back to Organic Chemistry Department at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid where has been working on some topics of sulfur chemistry and, additionally, has opened new research lines concerning organocatalysis and photocatalysis, mainly related to the development of new reactions and catalysts.

            Since 2000, Alberto Fraile has collaborated in the teaching of Organic Chemistry Department at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid as Assistant professor (2000-2012) and currently as Associate professor.

            In 2013, He was qualified as “Profesor Titular” by the ANECA (Spanish Government).
