School assembly election

14.06.2016 update: I've been elected at both Faculty council and School Assembly. A big thank to all for your support.
And do not hesitate to get in touch if you have concerns and/or questions I can bring in these boards.


I'm running for the School Assembly 2016-2018 and the Council of the Basic Sciences Faculty. Please find here a brief resume.

In 2004 I graduated from EPFL in Chemical Engineering. I then continued research with a doctorate work from 2006 until 2010 in the group of Prof. Moser at ISIC.
I have extended knowledge of EPFL organisation after continuous investment in different associations and councils. During my doctoral studies, I represented PhD students at the Chemistry doctoral school and was an active member of ACIDE, the researchers association. I was president of the PhD students subgroup in 2009-2010.
I moved to the UK, Oxford, as a post-doctoral researcher from 2010 until 2012 being active contributor to the pioneering work on perovskite solar cells.
I came back at EPFL in 2012 as a scientist in the laboratory of Prof. Grätzel and worked there until 2014. Since 2015 I'm a scientist at the photochemical dynamics group, pursuing my work on dynamics within solar cell materials.
With mandates at the Faculty council (SB) and School Assembly, I continue being active in the School associative and participative life. I'm the actual ACIDE president.
All these activities allow for a good knowledge of EPFL structure and help our action in favor of the Researchers.

Do not hesitate to contact me for further information!
