Business Development Manager – Industry platform
(Nanomaterial, Advanced Material, Advanced Manufacturing & Energy)
I graduated with a degree on Chemistry and Engineering at the INSA of Rouen in France, specialized on organic chemistry and I realized a PhD in organic chemistry in a collaborative project between IRCOF of Rouen (France) and ANSTO in Menai (Australia) on hexaazacages as bimodal agents for positron emission tomography imaging. I then joined Saarland University (Germany) as a Marie Curie post-doc of the RedCat project (FP7-ITN, GA: 215009), working on synthesis and biological essays of redox catalysts as modulators of intracellular levels of oxidative stress with implications for drug design. Building on my diverse scientific expertise, I have since dedicated my career in supporting R&D teams toward reaching their innovation to the market. After developing and managing the Centre for NanoBioSafety and Sustainability (CNBSS), an initiative between the Catalan Institute of Nanotechnology (ICN) and LEITAT, I have integrated in 2013 the International Project Office of LEITAT, where I am developing and managing EU projects related to nanotechnology, advanced material, energy and industrial applications as well as ensuring adequate exploitation for market applications. During those years, I have gained a major interest in helping start-up and SMEs to develop and implement innovative solution reaching emerging and changing the market.
