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. In 2013, I defended a PhD under the supervision of Prof. Pierre Audebert at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan on the design of photoactive derivatives based on triphenylamine and tetrazine fragments.
Between 2013 and 2015, I held a postdoctoral position in the group of Prof. Hiroko Yamada at the Nara Institute of Science and Technology (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science fellowship). My research projects concerned a photochemical layer-by-layer solution process for the preparation of organic semiconducting thin films.
In 2015, I joined the MaCSE team at ISCR as a postdoctoral researcher under the supervision of Dr Cyril Poriel. I have been involved in two research projects: spiro compounds for organic electronics applications (ANR Men In Blue) and nanorings based on bridged oligophenylenes (Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship).
Since 2018, I am CNRS researcher in the MaCSE team at ISCR. My main research activities are the design, synthesis and the study of the electronic properties of new molecular nanorings.
