Krzysztof Skowerski studied at Nicolaus Copernicus University (NCU) in Toruń, Poland and received his MSc. Degree in Chemistry in 2007. He spent three years as a researcher at the Department of Pharmacy at NCU. After training with Professor Karol Grela at Warsaw University he joined Apeiron Synthesis in 2009 and was appointed CTO in 2011. Since 2012 Krzysztof has led the development of novel ruthenium catalysts. His team focused on developing heterogeneous catalysts optimization and development of new processes utilizing metathesis technology.His research interests include homo- and heterogeneous catalysis and continuous flow processes. He is a co-author of 16 publications, 2 book chapters, inventor on 3 patents and 6 patent applications in the area of emerging technologies for chemical processes. Currently Apeiron provides numerous heterogeneous catalysts on different and well-characterized support systems on a commercial scale with full compatibility with CF processes.
Dr. Katarzyna (Kasia) Kaczanowska joined Apeiron Synthesis in June 2016. She received her doctoral degree in Chemistry from Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen, Germany in 2010. Dr. Kaczanowska has more than three years of industrial experience at EMC microcollections, Tübingen, Germany, and over four years of postdoctoral experience at renowned U.S. institutions, including The Scripps Research Institute (Prof. M.G. Finn) and the University of California (Prof. Palmer Taylor), San Diego. Her work is encompassed in ten peer-reviewed articles and two patents. She has broad experience in methodology development and multi-step syntheses of complex natural products and small molecules. Dr. Kaczanowska has a proven track-record of success in multidisciplinary projects where troubleshooting, synthesis optimization, and scale-ups are critical components.
