University of Granada, started 2017.
Kevin Hagmann is a German PhD student at the CSIC-University of Granada. He holds a Bachelor and Masters degree in Chemistry which he obtained at the University of Regensburg, Germany. In his Bachelor research he focused on reaction pathways of pentaphosphaferrocences in organometallic chemistry as well as the functionalization of nanoparticles for organic synthesis. For his Masters degree he specialized in physical, inorganic and analytical chemistry. In his Master thesis he simulated conditions on a primordial Earth to investigate the formation of organic building blocks in the context of the origin of life. Within the framework of the PROMETHEUS project, Kevin is pursuing his PhD in Chemistry and continuing his research on prebiotic chemistry. His major focus is the pattern formation and mineral self-organization in highly alkaline natural environments.
