Golo Storch obtained his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Chemistry at Heidelberg University with a research stay at the Laboratoire de Chimie de Coordination (LCC) du CNRS in Toulouse. Subsequently, he joined the group of Prof. Oliver Trapp at Heidelberg University and obtained his PhD in 2016 with a thesis in the field of stereodynamic ligands and their application in self-amplifying catalysis. He then moved to Yale University and explored quinone redox-interconversion as well as peptide ligands for site-selective catalysis with Prof. Scott Miller. Since 2019 he is a junior research group leader at TU Munich and Catalysis Research Center associate PI. His current research interests include all aspects of designing molecular flavin catalysts for applications in organic synthesis.
