Egger_Chrystelle

I studied biology and chemistry in Versailles, France. I then specialised in inorganic/physical chemistry and obtained my degree and Master from Versailles. I moved cross-Atlantic to Oklahoma State University (USA) to work as a Research Assistant on materials chemistry for one year. Then, I chose to do a PhD in collaboration with Synetix, ICI at UMIST, Manchester, UK dealing with the formation mechanism of mesoporous materials and their architecture in terms of surface curvature. I carried out my first post-doctoral research at the Max Planck for Colloids and Interfaces Sciences, Golm, Germany on hybrid porous materials and then at the Institut de Sciences et d’Ingenierie Supramoleculaires in Strasbourg, in a BASF laboratory on the design of nanoporous foams.  I came back to the UK in 2007 as a Lecturer in Chemistry and Forensic Sciences at Keele University.

Foam I am interested in porous materials, both from an academic and industrial point of view. I have developed a strong expertise in colloid chemistry, physical chemistry and polymer chemistry.
