Originally from Mexico, Lydia obtained her PhD from the University of East Anglia in the UK. She carried out her first postdoctoral position in Japan at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology.  In 2015, she joined the Polymer Chemistry team at Sorbonne University for her second postdoc before being recruited by the CNRS as a tenured researcher. Her research interests involve the molecular design and synthesis of pi-conjugated materials for applications in organic electronic and photonic devices, and supramolecular self-assembly at the nanoscale.

Lydia is currently president of the Ile-de- France section at the Societé Chimique de France. She is also member of the of the French Polymer group, the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Polymer Division within the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC).


Maître de conférence,  Université Paris Cité 

Cible Thérapeutique et Conception de Médicaments (CiTCoM – UMR CNRS 8038)             

Claire is an associate profesor in pharmacognosy since 2020 in the Produits Naturels, Analyses et Synthèses team (PNAS), part of the Cibles Thérapeutiques et Conception de Médicaments (CiTCoM – UMR CNRS 8038) unit of Université Paris Cité. Her research activities focus on the synthesis of natural products and the isolation of innovative original natural compounds that can be used in hemisynthesis.

In 2015, she obtained her PhD at the University of Montpellier in the field of total synthesis of phytofurans, under the supervision of Dr. Camille Oger and Dr. Jean-Marie Galano. She went to New Zealand as a postdoctoral fellow at the center for biodiscovery in Victoria University of Wellington, to work with Dr. Joanne Harvey and Dr. Paul Teesdale-Spittle on the total synthesis of Pateamine.  In 2017, she came back to France as teaching assistant for 2 years, firstly in Le Mans working on methodology of organic synthesis in team of IMMM and secondly at engineering School – Institut de Chimie de Clermont-Ferrand (ICCF) working on asymetric synthesis. She then stayed 1 more year in Clermont-Ferrand to work on extraction and phytochemistry study project in collaboration with PiLeJe Industry.

Julie OBLE (PhD)

Maître de conférence,  Sorbonne Université 

Institut Parisien de Chimie Moléculaire     Twitter: @ObleJulie        

Julie is an assistant professor at the Institut Parisien de Chimie Moléculaire (IPCM), Sorbonne Université (SU) since 2010. She received in 2007 her PhD degree from the Ecole Polytechnique (Paris, France). In 2007, she obtained a one-year postdoctoral position at the University of Montréal (Canada). After two further years as a postdoctoral fellow at SU, she joined in 2010 the Organometallic Reactivity and Catalysis for Synthesis team at IPCM. 

Her research focuses on the development of new metal-catalyzed domino reactions toward the synthesis of heterocycles, homogeneous and quasi-homogeneous catalytic C-H activations and biomass valorization. Julie is currently treasurer of the Ile-de- France section at the Societé Chimique de France.

Stéphanie HALBERT (PhD)

Maître de conférence,  Sorbonne Université 

Laboratoire de Chimie Théorique           

Stéphanie is an assistant professor at the Laboratoire de Chimie Théorique, Sorbonne Université since 2015. She obtained her PhD from the University of Montpellier. In 2013, she joined the Inorganic Organic and Organometallic Chemistry team at LCT for her postdoc before being recruited. Her research activities focuses on DFT studies of structure, properties, mechanisms and selectivity in catalysis or organic reactions. These theoretical works are in collaboration with experimental groups.

Stéphanie is currently Secretary of French Young Chemists’ Network RJ-SCF, member of the Ile-de- France section at the SCF and board member of SCF.

Aurélien DE LA TORRE (PhD)

Chargé de Recherche CNRS,  Université Paris Saclay 

Institut de Chimie Moléculaire et des Matériaux d’Orsay

Twitter: @Auredelatorre      

Aurélien de la Torre is a CNRS researcher at the Institut de Chimie Moléculaire et des Matériaux d’Orsay (ICMMO), Université de Paris-Saclay. After studying chemistry at Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Montpellier, he obtained his PhD from the University of Montpellier in 2014 under the supervision of Drs. Jean-Marie Galano and Camille Oger. He carried out postdoctoral research in the groups of Prof. Nuno Maulide at the University of Vienna, Austria, and Prof. Ilan Marek at the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology. 

In 2018, he joined the “Methodology, Synthesis and Therapeutical Molecules” team at ICMMO as a CNRS researcher. His research interests include asymmetric catalysis, cycloaddition reactions, cascade reactions and natural product synthesis. Since 2022 he is also a member of the Ile-de-France section board of the Société Chimique de France.

Jean GAMBY (PhD)

Chargé de recherche CNRS, Université Paris-Saclay

Centre de Nanosciences et Nanotechnologies

The research activities of Jean are based on microfluidic systems and electrical transductions on glass and/or flexible polymers. He develops new approaches coupling electrochemistry and microfluidics, particularly during the work developed in 2007-2016 at the Laboratory of Electrochemistry (LISE, Sorbonne University, Paris). In 2016, he joined the centre of nanosciences and nanotechnologies (C2N, Paris-Saclay Univ., Paris Cité Univ.) where he develops a new activity coupling electrochemistry and nanofluidics.

Since 2019, Jean is also group Leader of Smart Biosystems team (Biosys) at C2N.Jean is currently vice-president of the Ile-de-France section at the Société Chimique de France, and member of the International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE) and the Electrochemical Society (ECS).

Natacha Krins (PhD)

Maîtresse de conférences, Sorbonne Université

Laboratoire de Chimie de la Matière Condensée de Paris

Natacha Krins is an assistant professor in the RMES (Reactive Materials for Electrochemical deviceS) team of the Laboratoire Chimie de la Matière Condensée de Paris (LCMCP) at Sorbonne Université. She obtained her PhD from the University of Liège (Belgium) in 2009. She did a 1-year postdoc between Belgium and Paris, followed by a 3 year-postdoc at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. She integrated the LCMCP as a postdoc in 2013 and she was recruited as an assistant professor in 2014. 

Her research activities focus on considering inorganic nanomaterials for energy applications (conversion and storage). She believes that CARE can revolution university teaching and research to better embrace the systemic of the transition challenges.

Natacha is currently a member of the Ile-de-France section at the SCF.
