Sètuhn was born in Switzerland where he did his BSc at the University of Geneva. He then moved to ETH Zürich for his MSc and did his master thesis in the group of Prof. A.D. Schlüter where his worked focused on the synthesis of polyphenylenes with Suzuki polycondensation. After his MSc, he undertook a 6 months internship at BASF SE (Ludwigshafen, Germany) where he worked on ring-opening polymerisation of cyclic carbonates. In September 2016, he started his PhD at the University of Warwick in the Dove group and the O’Reilly group as a joint student. He is currently researching into the synthesis of organocatalytic nanoreactors. His project is funded through the SUSPOL programme.
