Teaching & PhD


Chemistry and Chemical Engineering


Advanced general chemistry II

Fundamental knowledge on the reactivity of organic compounds and their identification by mass spectrometry, IR spectroscopy and nuclear magnetic resonance.

Introduction to cheminformatics

Introduction to the management of chemical information and the main tools used.

Basic and advanced NMR - Level 1 A (EPFL)

Basic theoretical and experimental aspects of NMR will be taught. Students will be familarized with modern NMR spectrometers.

Basic and advanced NMR - Level 2 (EPFL)

The goal is to give a sound theoretical and practical foundation in NMR for various applications in research. PhD students and post-docs who have followed the course successfully should be able to perform modern multi-dimensional NMR experiments independently.

Mass spectrometry, principles and applications

The goal is to provide students with a complete overview of the principles and key applications of modern mass spectrometry and meet the current practical demand of EPFL researchers to improve structural analsis of molecules. Numerous instrumental aspects of mass spectrometry are described.
