Personal profile

Research profile

I started to study chemistry in 2006 at Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan (France), where I obtained B.Sc. degree in 2008 in physical chemistry. Then, I studied molecular chemistry at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris) and I obtained M.Sc. degree in 2010 after an internship with Prof. Koji Nakanishi and Prof. Nina Berova at Columbia University (New York). In 2014, I defended a PhD under the supervision of Prof. Jean-Marie Lehn at the Institut de Science et d'Ingénierie SupramoléculairesUniversité de Strasbourg on dynamic covalent chemistry. My research projects concerned various aspects of the response of dynamic covalent systems to triggers such as photochemical switching, metal ion binding and phase change. Since October 2014, I have been a postdoctoral fellow in the group of Prof. Bert Meijer working on photo-responsive adaptive materials, to induce surface motion in liquid crystal polymer coatings. I am also involved in a project on cooperative folding of single-chain polymeric nanoparticles by covalent dynamic chemistry.
