Pasted Graphic 1

M. Sc., in Fundamental Chemistry, University of Poitiers, France (2012)
Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry, University Pierre et Marie Curie and Ecole Nationale Supérieure Chimie Paris, Paris, France (2015)
Research and teaching assistant, Chemistry, Ecole Normale Supérieure de Chimie, Lyon, France (2017)


Deborah obtained her Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry at University Pierre et Marie Curie and Ecole Nationale Supérieure Chimie Paris. Her research focused on thermodynamic forecasts, feasibility of electrochemical reduction and solubility of CO2 in molten carbonate salts.
Then she moved to Ecole Normale Superieure de Chimie de Lyon (France) to teach and investigate synthesis and electrochemical behaviors of gels under supervision of Dr. Christophe Bucher, Research Director at the French National Council for Scientific Research (CNRS).

She joined Prof. Bard’s group in fall 2017 and is currently working on mechanisms of electrocatalysis.
