Research Interests:

 

My background is in organic chemistry, however during my PhD I started to look at the use of ultrasounds to enhance the reaction rates. Since it gave me good results, I am very keen on this technique and now I am using ultrasounds everywhere! In my research laboratory, students study how ultrasounds can be used to accelerate the degradation rate of persistent harmful pollutants. As you can see, little by little I have become a sonochemist with an emphasis on environmental chemistry. Nothing is set in stone... I am also very interested in nanotechnology and especially the study of fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, their behavior in organic solvents and their possible chemical functionalization.
