Keith Fagnou

Associate Professor

Department of Chemistry
University of Ottawa


Keith received a Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) degree from the University of Saskatchewan in 1995 and, after teaching at the high school level for a short period, continued his studies in chemistry at the University of Toronto. In 2000 he received a M.Sc. degree, and in 2002 a Ph.D under the supervision of Prof. Mark Lautens. After his PhD, he joined the faculty at the University of Ottawa as an Assistant Professor and in 2007 was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure and awarded a University of Ottawa Research Chair in the Development of Novel Catalytic Transformations. His research interests target the use of transition metal complexes as catalysts in the development of new chemical reactions. Much of the research under investigation in his group focusses on the establishment of more chemically and economically efficient processes for potential application in the pharmaceutical and fine chemical sectors.

Keith passed away unexpectedly in November 2009.
