Pavle Radovanovic received his B.S. equivalent from the University of Novi Sad (Serbia) and his Ph.D. degree from the University of Washington, Seattle. Following his postdoctoral appointment at Harvard University, he started his independent research career at the University of Waterloo in 2006. At Waterloo he initiated a new research program in physical-inorganic chemistry focusing on the design, synthesis, and fundamental physical and chemical properties of multifunctional low-dimensional materials. His work has been recognized by number of honors and awards, including Canada Research Chair (NSERC), Keith Laidler Award for outstanding early-career contributions to physical chemistry (Canadian Society for Chemistry), Discovery Accelerator Supplement Award (NSERC), Early Researcher Award (Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation), Mobility Award (French Ministry of Foreign Affairs), and CNC-IUPAC Award. Outside of the lab he enjoys swimming, playing violin and trumpet (although not as often as he used to), and coloring and playing with his children.
