Holder of a Ph.D. in chemistry with multi-disciplinary experience in synthetic (organic, inorganic, material chemistry) and analytical chemistry (spectroscopic characterization of materials), in addition to having a teaching diploma. Received a PhD in organometallic chemistry from the University of Rennes1 (France) in November 2012; the work was dedicated to the synthesis and photophysical characterization of luminescent cyclometallated iridium and platinum complexes. After Ph.D., I moved to the Laboratory of Catalysis and Spectroscopy (ENSICAEN: National Graduate School of Engineering & Research Center, Caen, France) where I worked on different research projects (academic and confidential) as post-doctoral researcher (2013-2015) then as a researcher (2016-present). ▪ Preparation and characterization of silver nano-particles supported on zeolite nanocrystals for application in photovoltaic solar cells. ▪ Spectroscopic characterization of supported catalysts using FTIR, Raman and AGIR (combined gravimetry and IR spectroscopy), a confidential project sponsored by Total. ▪ Spectroscopic characterization of metal containing zeolites for oxygen delivery applications. ▪ Investigating zeolite as a potential candidate for extending car-engine lubricant lifetime (confidential project). ▪Characterization of lamellar materials based on transition metal oxides for liquid phase catalysis. Working in different fields broadened and deepened my knowledge and gave me valuable experience in project management. I also developed a keen interest for research at the interface between academia and industry. Beside the experimental work, I am the representative and ex-president (2014-2016) of “Cub of young chemists” (Normandy region) of the French Chemical Society and member of “European Young Chemists’ Network ”.
