Doctor Emilie Moulin

Research Director CNRS

Emilie MoulinEmilie Moulin studied chemistry in Toulouse and Paris before being trained on the total synthesis of resorcylic acid lactones as a PhD student in the group of Prof. Nicolas Winssinger (University of Strasbourg). For her PhD work, she was awarded two PhD prizes : one from the University of Strasbourg and one from the French Chemical Society (SCF).

She then joined the group of Prof. Aloïs Furstner as a post-doctoral fellow at the Max Planck Institute für Kohlenforschung (Mulheim an der Ruhr, Germany) where she worked on the total synthesis of macrocyclic molecules called Iejimallides. For this stay, she was awarded the prestigious Alexander von Humboldt post-doctoral fellowship.

In 2008, she joined the group of Prof. Nicolas Giuseppone as a Chargée de Recherche CNRS (Assistant Professor). She has been mainly working on the development of triarylamine-based supramolecular systems and their applications in organic electronics. In december 2014, Emilie obtained her habilitation à diriger les recherches entitled "Synthesis of Complex Molecules and Supramolecular Systems : From Biology to Materials Science". On October 1st 2020, she was appointed Research Director at the CNRS in the SAMS research group.

Emilie Moulin is currently involved in the synthesis of complex small molecules to build (multi)functional supramolecular systems and of molecular machines for integrated motions. Since 2015, she is directing research projects combining supramolecular chemistry and polymer chemistry. She is also interested by the characterization of supra-/macromolecular systems using scattering techniques. In 2015, her work was awarded the price "Les espoirs de l'université de Strasbourg".
