Carl Poree was born in 1987 in London, and grew up in Suffolk, in the UK. He studied Chemistry as an undergraduate at Balliol College, University of Oxford, completing his final year project in transition-metal catalysed fluorination with Prof. Veronique Gouverneur FRS, and graduating in 2010 with first-class honours.
He moved to the University of Bristol (2010-2013), and then the University of Edinburgh (2013-2015), as a graduate student under the supervision of Prof. Guy Lloyd-Jones FRS, graduating with a PhD in 2015 (thesis: "In Situ Diazomethane Generation and the Palladium-Catalysed Cyclopropanation of Alkenes").
Carl remained in the Lloyd-Jones group for a short postdoc, working on the synthesis of isotopically-labelled tracers for atmospheric chemistry. He then joined the Institute for Organic Chemistry at RWTH Aachen as a postdoc in the group of Prof. Franziska Schoenebeck, before moving to the School of Chemistry at Trinity College Dublin as a teaching fellow in 2017.
