Dr. Beeraiah Baire was born in Karimnagar, Telangana and obtained his M.Sc. degree in chemistry from University of Hyderabad. He earned his Ph.D. in Synthetic Organic Chemistry (2007) under the supervision of Prof. A. Srikrishna (Late) from Departement of Organic Chemistry, IISc Bangalore. INDIA. From Nov 2007 to Nov 2009 he was working as Research Associate in the same Laboratory. After that he worked as a post-doctoral fellow with Prof Thomas R Hoye, University of Minnesota, Minneaplolis, USA from Dec 2009 to Aug 2013. During his post doctoral research, he discovered and explored the Hexadehydro Diels-Alder (HDDA) Reaction for the generation of complex benzynes to polycyclic benzenoids. In September 2013, he joined the Department of Chemistry, IIT Madras. His research focuses on 1) the exploration of unconventional re-activity of alkynes and propargylic alcohols for the development of new, cascade synthetic strategies in the organic synthesis; 2) Total synthesis of bioactive natural products and drugs.
