Isidro M. Pastor studied chemistry at the University of Alicante from which he received B.S. (1996), M.S. (1997), and Ph.D. (2000) negrees. After a post-doctoral stay (2000-2002) at the University of Stockholm, working in asymmetric synthesis under the supervision of Dr. Hans Adolfsson, he joined the Prof. M. Yus' group at the University of Alicante (2003). Since 2003 he has been hired as a lecturer by the University of Alicante. His research interests are focused on the preparation and application of organolithium compounds and the synthesis of heterocyclic derivatives and their applications as ligands in asymmetric synthesis.
