Coralie earned her M. S. in Chemistry and Physics in 2015 from the graduate school of Chemistry, Biology and Physics (Bordeaux INP) in France. She obtained it with a specialization in Polymers science and chemical applications of Lipids. In 2014, she undertook a 5-month placement under the supervision of Pr. Rodionov in the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia. She synthesized and characterized a library of amphiphilic block copolymers for catalytic applications using ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP). This work led to a poster presented as the 2015 annual ACS meeting. In 2015, she realized her thesis work for her master’s degree at the research centre of Solaize (CReS) for the French petroleum group Total. She worked on innovative lubricant for automotive applications during 6 months. Coralie joined the University of Basque County in December 2015 as a PhD student under the guidance of Dr. Fernando Ruiperez and Haritz Sardon at the University of Basque Country and Prof. Adrew Dove at the University of Warwick as part of the European project SUSPOL. She is a recipient of the Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher fellowship. She is working on the modelling and synthesizing of new organocatalysts. Her research topics are focused on the study of organic radicals’ properties for multiple applications including polymer recycling and catalysis.
