Solvent signal suppression in pure shift NMR spectroscopy

I obtained a Chemistry Engineer degree and M. Sc. at the National School of Chemistry in Toulouse, France (2003), and subsequently my PhD in Analytical Chemistry from the University of Nantes, France (2006). My PhD work, supervised by Serge Akoka, was focused on quantitative 13C methodology and applications in authentication and metabolomics.
In 2006 I was appointed as a research engineer at the Institut Parisien de Chimie moléculaire (CNRS research unit), where I was responsible for technical management of the NMR facility, and involved in specific NMR experiments for research projects.

In 2014 I moved to the Rennes Institute of Chemical Sciences (Rennes, France), where I am a scientific and technical expert in high-resolution NMR: I provide scientific support in NMR for chemists, I conduct specific NMR experiments development for different research projects. I also coordinate projects for management and modernization of the NMR facility.

During the year 2022-2023, I am very happy to be hosted in the NMR methodology group of University of Manchester for a research stay focused on solvent signal suppression in pure shift NMR spectroscopy
