Ph. D level researcher with diverse and substantial applied experience. I developped a chemistry research expertise and ability to strong problem-solving skills.I build along years an expertise in synthetic and analytic chemistry. I explored many applications fields such as, organic compounds for OFET applications, fluorescent materials, phthalocyanines for OPV, and molecules for therapeutic applications. I am a productive and flexible scientist. I develop during my last project skills in management and business.I adapt myself quickly to new environments and research techniques.
