Ph.D., Pharm.D.



You have reached my personal website. I am currently working under Fulbright and BAEF grants as a post-doctoral fellow in the Lippard Lab (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge).

After having graduated in june 2005 (Pharmaceutical Sciences, Master of Science), I began the preparation of a Ph.D. thesis under the supervision of François Dufrasne (Université Libre de Bruxelles) in october 2008; after a short stay as a quality assurance specialist in the pharmaceutical industry. 

After my PhD thesis (defended in 2013), I completed a first post-doctoral stay in the Hanessian group at the Université de Montréal. I mainly focused on the synthesis and study of proline derivatives, from their structural features to their electronic properties. I have also been part of purely synthetic projects, mainly involved in the rationalization of reaction mechanisms by DFT calculations.
