! Bienvenue - Welcome !

I obtained my PhD on Sept, 29th of 2014 in the University Pierre and Marie Curie - UPMC - on the role of transition metal ions in the color of oxide glasses, applied to the study of stained glass woindows. My PhD was supervised by Georges Calas from the Institut de Minéralogie et Physique des Milieux Condensés - IMPMC - and Michel Hérold from the Centre André Chastel.

My research interests focus on the use of spectroscopic tools to investigate the speciation of transition elements in complex matrices. My PhD work focused on the study of the speciation of Co(II) ions in oxide glasses. These results enabled me to better understand the origin of the blue coloration of stained glass windows from Middle Age.
