Personal profile


Andrés Felipe León Rojas is a research fellow with Dr. Daniel Priebbenow at the Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Science (MIPS).

Mr. Andres Leon was born in Colombia and received his B.Sc. degree from Industrial University of Santander (Colombia) in 2015, and earned his M.Sc. degree from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (Mexico) in 2017. Subsequently, he served as a research assistant within the same academic group for one year. In 2020, he transitioned to Monash University (Australia) to join Prof. Philip Chan’s group where he submitted his thesis in 2024. His research interests predominantly focus on the development of novel asymmetric transformations enabled by transition metals. This includes leveraging statistical modelling techniques to expedite the discovery and optimization of new and robust ligands and catalysts for asymmetric catalysis.
