After a Ph.D. (2007-2010) on the total synthesis of natural products under the supervision of Jean-François Poisson and Andrew Greene in Grenoble, France, I joined the group of Marc Taillefer (Montpellier, France) as a post-doctoral researcher where I had the opportunity to work on catalysis. In 2012, I decided to continue in this field in the group of Lukas Gooßen (Kaiserslautern, Germany) in particular on the development of original C-H activation and trifluoromethylation cross-couplings. Then, I combined my experiences in total synthesis and catalysis by joining the group of Olivier Baudoin (Lyon, France).
In 2015, I was appointed CNRS researcher at the Laboratoire de Chimie Moléculaire of the Ecole polytechnique. First, I am interested in cobalt catalysis, particularly for cross-coupling reactions, and I am currently developing new catalysts or catalytic systems involving notably f-elements.
