Vezonik Uroš

Uroš Vezonik is a Master’s student at the Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology, University of Ljubljana. The first research project he was involved in was a PKP project Development of Water-based Dispersion Coatings with Improved Rheological Properties in his second year. He is the most interested in the field of organic chemistry, which is why he was working on the synthesis of new ligands for the transition metals under the supervision of prof. dr. Janez Košmrlj for his Bachelor’s degree. As an ASEF fellow, he got the opportunity to join prof. Šalah’s research group at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign this summer, where he will work on the synthesis of complex and biologically active natural products. Uroš is a big sports fan. His favorite is basketball, which he used to play. Besides following sports, he enjoys walking his dog and watching suspenseful movies

Uroš Vezonik je študent magistrskega študija kemije na Fakulteti za kemijo in kemijsko tehnologijo (FKKT) Univerze v Ljubljani. Z raziskovalnim delom se je prvič srečal v 2. letniku študija, ko je sodeloval na PKP projektu Razvoj vodnih disperzijskih premazov z izboljšanimi reološkimi lastnostmi. Njegova zanimanja segajo predvsem na področje organske kemije, diplomsko delo pa je opravil pod mentorstvom prof. dr. Janeza Košmrlja, kjer se je ukvarjal s sintezo novih ligandov za kovine prehoda. Poleti se odpravlja na University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, kjer bo kot ASEF fellow imel priložnost raziskovati v skupini prof. Davida Šarlaha in pridobiti izkušnje na področju totalne sinteze kompleksnih in biološko aktivnih naravnih produktov. Uroš je velik športni navdušenec in še posebej zavzeto spremlja košarko, s katero se je v preteklosti aktivno ukvarjal. Poleg športa mu prosti čas krajšajo tudi sprehodi s psom in gledanje napetih filmov.
