Mélissa attended the University of Bordeaux from 2008 to 2013 and graduated with a BSc and a MSc in Molecular and Macromolecular Chemistry. Strongly interested in Supramolecular Chemistry she then moved to the University of Lyon to do a PhD (2013-2016) in collaboration with the Belgian pharmaceutical company UCB Pharma. Her research focused on the use of tailored self-assembled synthetic receptors obtained by dynamic combinatorial chemistry for the recognition of specific motifs on therapeutic protein surfaces.
In 2017 she joined the group of Prof. Sir. J. F. Stoddart (Northwestern University, Evanston) as a postdoctoral fellow where she worked on the design, synthesis and study of molecular machines and particularly, switchable molecular muscles.
Between 2020 and 2022, she accepted a teaching and research assistant position (2020-2021) at Paul Sabatier University (Toulouse), followed by a postdoctoral position at CEMES (CNRS, Toulouse) in the Nanosciences group (2021-2022) where she worked on the design and synthesis of functional molecular architectures including molecular motors.
She joined ROBIC’s team in 2022.
