Students involved in my research program are exposed to diverse areas of chemistry including synthesis, medicinal chemistry, catalysis and nano-technology. The interdisciplinary nature of my research is a tremendous asset in their training, because it bridges the disciplines of biology, materials science and chemistry. In addition to the scientific training listed above, my research program encourages creativity, imagination and strong problem-solving skills. This training has opened doors to careers in various fields, particularly as chemists in the academic sector and the pharmaceutical industry:

Dr. Julien Gravel : FRQNT postdoctoral fellow at McGill University

Dr. Julie Kempf : Postdoctoral fellow at Université de Grenoble

Thierry Harvard, MSc : Professor, Collège Ahunstic

Dr. Claude-Rosny Elie: Lecturer at Université de Montréal

Dr. Vincent Gauchot : Peptide Scientist at Almac Group

Dr. Christine Chhun : Researcher at Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris

Dr. Nadim Noujeim : Patent Officer at Robic

Dr. Marc Vidal : Scientific researcher at Gladius Pharmaceuticals Inc;

Dr. Valentina Carboni : Postdoctoral fellow at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology

Mathieu Charbonneau, MSc: Professor, Collège Lionel-Groulx and Cégep du Vieux-Montréal

Vanessa Kairouz, MSc : Coordinator Flow Chemistry Centre, Université de Montréal

Dr. Mathieu Branca : Assistant Professor, Université Paris Diderot - Paris 7

Dr. Loic Leclercq : Assistant Professor, Université de Lille - Lille

Among my important contributions to teaching have been the research opportunities that I provide to undergraduate students, who have played an important role in my research program since its inception. Active in outreach activities, I participate in project “SEUR” to introduce high school students to university research by supervising high-school summer students and I contribute to “Women in Science”. Going beyond the scope of my required university pedagogy, I am determined to contribute to these activities, because they are stimulating and enriching means for empowering younger students, particularly young women from backgrounds in which higher education has been undervalued.
