Cory Bausch

Organic Chemistry
Postdoc with External Senior Fellow Michael Krische and Internal Senior Fellow Bernhard Breit


Cory Bausch received his bachelors degree in Chemistry in 2002 from Knox College in Galesburg, IL, USA. He then joined the research group of Professor Jeffrey S. Johnson at the University of North Carolina where he obtained his PhD in the fall of 2007. His PhD thesis was on benzoin-type reactions and tandem C-C bond forming reactions using acyl anion equivalents. He worked as a Post-Doctoral Fellow with Professor Andreas Pfaltz at the University of Basel, Basel, Switzerland through October 2009. He currently is a Post-Doctoral Fellow on a joint project with Professor Michael Krische and Professor Bernhard Breit.

FRIAS Project

Development of new catalytic methods using the expertise of both research groups, namely - transition-metal catalysis and hydrogen mediated C-C bond formations. We will seek efficient, inexpensive, and atom economic approaches making the best use of resources in the synthetic processes.
