Stéphane Bellemin-Laponnaz

Stéphane BelleminStéphane Bellemin-Laponnaz studied chemistry at the Université Joseph Fourier (Grenoble) and the Université Louis Pasteur (Strasbourg). He obtained his doctorate in 1998 under the direction of Prof. John A. Osborn and Dr J. P. Le Ny working in the field of homogeneous catalysis. He then joined the group of Prof. Gregory C. Fu at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as a post-doctoral fellow working on asymmetric reactions. In late 2000, he joined the group of Prof. Lutz h. Gade at the Université de Strasbourg as Chargé de recherche CNRS and moved in 2010 to the Institut de Physique et Chimie des Matériaux de Strasbourg as Directeur de recherche CNRS. His research interests are in the fields of organometallic chemistry, coordination chemistry and catalysis.

As part of his Fellowship, Stéphane Bellemin-Laponnaz is working on the project Metallopolymer-elastomer hybrids for light-driven soft robotics, with his collaborator Matteo Mauro.
