Loïc Lemiègre obtained his PhD degree from the University of Rouen in 2002 under the supervision of Dr. Jacques Maddaluno. Then he joined the group of Prof. Eiichi Nakamura (The University of Tokyo) as a postdoc working on fullerene chemistry (2002-2004) and then he moved to the group of Prof. Jonathan Clayden (The University of Manchester) working on molecular helices (2004-2005). He started his academic career in 2005 at the ENSC-Rennes where he is now associate professor. He is mainly interested in the synthesis of amphiphilic molecules related to carbohydrates and their self-assemblies, and in bio-based polymers.

During this seminary, he will talk about “Synthesis and self-assembly of sugar-based molecules : A sweet way towards gels”
