Research Scientist in Green Chemistry

Ph.D holder since november 2020, after 8 years as chemical engineer, my research is dedicated to implement green chemistry on various bio-sourced compounds to bring innovation in fields such as biocontrol, cosmetics, polymers. My expertise is mainly on phenolic compounds with a notable exception for the derivatives of levoglucosenone. However, curious and dynamic by nature, I am highly interested in all projects related to green chemistry.
