Prof Ramon Rios was born in 1974 in Barcelona. In 1996 he got his Bachelor Degree from University of Barcelona. In 2000, he obtained his PhD degree under the supervisión of Prof. Albert Moyano working in the study of the Pauson Khand reaction with electron deficient enynes. After several postdoc and research stages with Prof. Greg C. Fu (MIT, BOSTON, 1999), Prof. Patrick Walsh (University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, 2001), Prof. Benjamin List (Max Plank, Muelheim an der Ruhr, 2004-2006), Prof. Armando Córdova (University of Stockholm, Stockholm, 2006-2007) and Prof. Jose Mª Alvarez-Pez (University of Granada, Granada, 2007); and an industrial experience (J.C.

In august 2012 he became Reader in Organic Chemistry in the University of Southampton. In Augst 2022, Ramon accepted a full Professorship position at Khalifa University, He has been visiting Professor in Nagoya Institute of Technology (Japan, 2011) and Sungkyunkwan (SKKU0) University (South Korea, 2014-2019). He is author more than 140 papers, 17 chapters in chemical books, and 1 patent. He has edited a book about the Pauson-Khand reaction, one about organocatalysis, oneabout the synthesis of oxindoles and one about spiro compounds.He was also editor of Asymmetric Organocatalysis (Ed. Versitas) and is actually editor of Scientific Reports and Frontiers in Chemistry.

His research interests are the development of new asymmetric methodologies based in Organocatalysis and/or Organometallic Chemistry.
