Dr. Jury Medvedev

Postdoctoral Fellow

Jury obtained his Ph.D. degree in organic synthesis from Saint Petersburg State University in 2015, where his research focused on thermal, photochemical, and catalytic transformations of diazo compounds for applications in the synthesis of heterocyclic structures. In 2019, he joined the Klinkova group at the University of Waterloo as a postdoctoral fellow. His current research interests include application of nanostructured materials in electroorganic synthesis and studies of sustainable anodic processes for direct and indirect electrochemical CO2 reduction.
