About the Winner


Catherine S J Cazin received her MSc from the Université Montpellier II in 1999 and her PhD from the University of Exeter where she worked under the supervision of Robin B. Bedford on Pd-based catalytic systems. Catherine carried out a postdoctoral stay at the Universität des Saarlandes with Michael Veith and one at the Institut Français du Pétrole with Hélène Olivier-Bourbigou. She then obtained a position as Chargée de Recherche at the CNRS. She joined the EaStCHEM School of Chemistry of St Andrews in 2009. She currently holds a Royal Society University Research Fellowship (since 2011).

Dr Cazin has been recognised for her work in transition metal chemistry and homogeneous catalysis. In 2012, she was made Organometallic fellow by the American Chemical Society and in 2014 she was awarded the Royal Society of Edinburgh Sir Thomas Makdougall Brisbane Medal and recognised as a Rising Star Speaker at the 41st International Conference on Coordination Chemistry (ICCC-41) held in Singapore.

Dr Cazin has served as Associate Editor of Royal Society Open Science Journal since 2014. She served as an elected member of the Royal Society of Chemistry Dalton Council from 2011-2014 and has been a member of the Royal Society of Edinburgh Young Academy of Scotland since 2013.
