Past experience as a CNRS researcher at CEMHTI-Orléans (2008-2015)

  • Characterization of local structural disorder in organic-inorganic hybrid materials by combining multidimensional solid-state NMR spectroscopy and DFT calculations with other experimental techniques, such as X-ray diffraction and electron microscopy.
  • Local structure of layered materials with stacking disorder, including clays, layered double hydroxides, layered (alumino- or boro-)silicates (International ANR/NSF project 2009 ALUBOROSIL).
  • Development of numeric tools for the visualization and analyses of DFT-calculated NMR properties of solid-state materials, and for the modelling of compositional disorder in crystals (ANR project "Modèles Numériques" 2011 ExaviZ)
  • Molecular modelling of molten salts (ANR MatetPro project 2013 MIMINELA).
