Prinson P. Samuel was born in Kerala, a small but beautiful state in the southern part India. He completed his M.Sc. in Chemistry from University of Kerala in 2003 and M. Tech. in Industrial Catalysis from Cochin University of Science and Technology in 2006. Shortly, he joined National Chemical Laboratory, Pune in the research group of Dr. A. P. Singh (Senior scientist) and worked towards developing an industrial catalytic technology for bisphenol A synthesis in a collaborative project with GE India Ltd. In 2007, he was awarded the International Research and Training Group (IRTG) fellowship to pursue his doctoral studies in the group of Prof. Dr. Carola Schulzke in University of Goettingen and worked in the biomimetic chemistry of Mo and W. In 2011, he was awarded a Doctorate degree from University of Goettingen. Later on, he joined the research group of Prof. Dr. Herbert W. Roesky, University of Goettingen, for his postdoctoral research and actively involved in exploring the chemistry of low coordinate transition metals showing single molecule magnetic properties and compounds with low valent group 14 elements. He has co-authored 44 research articles including 2 reviews published in international journals in addition to 3 book chapters. He is an author of the book "Molybdenum and Tungsten Cofactor Model Chemistry" published by Nova Sci. Publ. New York.
