Curriculum Vitae

Eric M. Ferreira

As an undergraduate student at MIT (1996-2000), Eric worked on copper-catalyzed conjugate reduction chemistry under the direction of Prof. Stephen Buchwald.  His Ph.D. research with Prof. Brian Stoltz at the California Institute of Technology (2000-2005) focused on the development of synthetically useful novel oxidation systems using palladium catalysis.  Upon completion, he then continued his studies as an American Cancer Society postdoctoral associate at Stanford (2005-2008) with Prof. Barry Trost, where his studies concerned the use of ruthenium and palladium catalyzed cycloisomerizations for the formation of polycyclic compounds.  He then began his independent career as an assistant professor at Colorado State University in 2008.
