A wee bit more about me....

After graduating university, Riko pursued the sciences academically, motivated by an encounter with Nobel Laureate Chemist Suzuki Akira, and went on to earn a masters degree in the same laboratory under prof. H. Itou. Her focus was to  invent novel processes for complex drug syntheses, utilizing metal catalysts.

Copper(I)-Catalyzed Enantioselective Boryl Substitution of Allyl Acylals: An Efficient Approach for Enantioenriched α-Chiral γ-Acetoxyallylboronates; Y. Takenouchi, R. Kojima, R. Momma, H. Ito, Synlett, 2017, 28, 270-274.

In pursuit of fulfilling her creative aspirations, Riko joined L’Oreal as a formulation chemist and specialized in skin sciences, specifically in the delivery of actives to skin. Following this move, she joined the product development team as a project leader, orchestrating projects from conception to production.
