Shawn Collins's Biography

Shawn Collins, Full Professor, Université de Montréal

Shawn K. Collins was born in 1974 and raised in Val d'Or, Québec. He obtained a B.Sc. (Honours) degree from Concordia University in 1996 while working with Professor Ossie S. Tee. He completed his doctoral dissertation in 2001 with Professor Alex G. Fallis at the University of Ottawa. After an NSERC postdoctoral fellowship with Professor Larry E. Overman (University of California, Irvine), he joined the faculty at Université de Montréal in September 2003 as an Assistant Professor. He was promoted to the rank of Associate Professor in 2009 and to Full Professor in 2015. Professor Collins's research group is interested in the development of novel synthetic methods, particularly involving catalysis, photochemistry and continuous flow methods.

Traditional macrocyclization reactions often use batch reactors and/or apparatus for slow addition protocols. However, an emerging alternative exists in performing macrocyclizations in continuous flow. Continuous processing can offer several advantages, including higher yields and shorter reaction times due to improved mass and energy transfer. Continuous flow macrocyclizations involving the olefin metathesis reaction, the Glaser-Hay coupling, CuAAC as well as new photochemical macrocyclizations will be discussed.
