Career summary:

Yann obtained his PhD in 2000 at the University Claude Bernard Lyon 1 (France) under the supervision of Pr. H. Parrot-Lopez and Pr. J.-B. Regnouf de Vains in the field of Supramolecular chemistry.

After two years working in the field of molecular modelling as temporary Lecturer in the same university and at INSA Lyon, he came back to supramolecular chemistry by taking during two years a post doctoral research associate position in Dr. J. H. Tucker's group in UK (in Exeter, but now Jim moved to Birmingham) where he developped anthracene containing molecular photoswitchable receptors, in collaboration with Dr. Dario Bassani and Dr. J.-P. Desvergne from the University of Bordeaux 1.

He was appointed as permanent Lecturer in chemistry at the University of Rennes 1 in September 2005 and joined the solid state chemistry and material team to develop a new research in the field of hybrid organic-inorganic functional nanomaterials. In particular, his research interests are focused on the integration of metallic clusters in organic matrices such as polymers or liquid crystals. He was officially promoted as Full Professor in September 2021.
