Current Experience

  • Scientific mediator
    Since September 2015
    The Chimiscope allows to illustrate and demonstrate the founding principles of the science, as well as to make discover their application and their expression in our daily life in a playful and cheerful form. One visit lasts 1-1.5 h and it is performed for 5 to 25 people, from the age of 6 to 25 years. There are high standard demonstrations of different topics: Colors, Energy, Chirality, Environment and “Chimiscool”. More information about the Chimiscope: http://www.chimiscope.ch

  • Research Assistant
    Since October 2013
    Analytical Chemistry and Chemical Sensors - Prof. Eric Bakker One part of my PhD work has been focused on the solid contact ion-to-electron transducer (ferrocene based membrane electrodes, conducting polymers, self assembled monolayers). The main experimental techniques used are potentiometry, cyclic voltammetry, chronopotentiometry, chronoamperometry. The second part of my work has been focused on the nanooptical sensors that function in exhaustive and ion-exchange mode. The main techniques used are UV-Vis and Fluorescence spectroscopy.
