Originally from St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Qc., Anthony completed his B.Sc. in pharmaceutical chemistry at Sherbrooke University in December 2015. He then started his M.Sc., at the beginning of 2016, under the supervision of Pr. Claude Spino working on developing a radical cyclisation cascade for the synthesis of quassinoïds. After completion of his M.Sc. in June 2018, he joined the Arndtsen group as a Ph.D. student working on asymmetric counterion-directed catalysis.
