Doron Pappo earned his Ph.D. from Tel Aviv University in 20006 under the guidance of Yoel Kashman. He subsequently conducted postdoctoral work with Prof. K. C. Nicolaou at The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, and the Biopolis Chemical Synthesis Laboratory, ICES (A*STAR), Singapore (2006–2007). From 2007–2009, he was a senior researcher in Prof. Keinan's group at the Technion and then held a team-leader position at Makhteshim-Agan (currently ADAMA; 2010).

He joined the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev faculty in 2010 as an assistant professor. He was promoted in 2016 to an associate professor and in 2020 to the rank of a full professor. ​ 

The Pappo group's primary research interest is developing and designing novel redox systems for selective oxidation and dehydrogenation reactions based on earth-abundant metal catalysts such as iron, copper, cobalt, and manganese. 

Doron was awarded in 2016 The Israeli Chemical Society Award for Outstanding Young Scientist for his group research achievements and, in 2023, The Israel Chemical Society-Adama Prize for Technological Innovation.
