MissionAnne-Sophie Chauvin is involved in the teaching of General and Analytical Chemistry for students enrolled on first year in Pharmacy and Biology (UNIL): ex-cathedra courses (Chimie Générale et analytique I et II, approfondissement en chimie analytique pour pharmaciens) and exercices.
She is also in charge of practical sessions for students enroled in chemistry, forensic sciences, pharmacy and biology.
Her research activities are mainly devoted to luminescence and the development of coordination polymers based on actinides (U(IV), Th).
She is elected at the FSB Faculty Council and was member of the EPFL Assembly (AE) for 6 years, until 2018. She was member of the Management committee of the Cost CM 1006 action entitled Eufen: European F-Element Network and Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC). She is Member of the Swiss Chemical Society (SCS).
BiographieAnne-Sophie Chauvin studied chemistry and biology at the university Paris V-René Descartes in France where she did a PhD in bioinorganic chemistry, working on mimetic complexes of the active site of Nitrile Hydratase, under the supervision of Prof. Jean-Claude Chottard.
On 1999 she moved for 20 months to the University of Geneva, for a post-doctoral stay under the supervision of Prof. Alexandre Alexakis, where she focused on the determination of the absolute configuration of chiral alcohols using organophosphorous diamine derivatizing agents by 31P and 1H NMR Spectroscopy.
On 2000 she joined the group of Prof Jean-Claude G. Bünzli. Her research interests concerned supramolecular chemistry with the design of ligands which form water soluble complexes with luminescent lanthanides in view of biological applications. She was also interested in the synthesis of ligands and polymers for the extraction of lanthanide ions with high selectivity.
She was appointed part-time lecturer in 2001, assuming teaching and research responsibilities. On 2006, she obtained the habilitation to direct research from the University René Descartes (HDR, Paris V, France) and since october 2007 she is Maître d'Enseignement et de Recherche at the EPFL.
She has been working on developing invisible inks.
In 2010, she joigned the Laboratory for Photonics and Interfaces (LPI), headed by Pr. Michaël Graëtzel, focusing on photovoltaics and organic dyes for dyes sensitized solar cells DSSC.
Since the end of 2014, with the arrival of Dr Marinella Mazzanti at EPFL, she is back to lanthanide chemistry and also to actinide chemistry.
