Carlos Jarava-Barrera

Carlos Jarava-Barrera was born in Valencia in 1988. In 2011, he obtained his B.S. in Chemistry from the Universidad de Castilla La Mancha. In 2012, he received his master degree from the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid under the supervision of Dr Jose Aleman and Dr Alejandro Parra. In 2014 he joined Tortosa group where he is currently working on the development of new borylation reactions under the supervision of Dr. Mariola Tortosa.
