Caitilín Mc Manus

Post Doctoral researcher

Caitilín is from Ireland and completed her Chemistry degree at Trinity College, Dublin. For her PhD she worked in the group of Simon Aldridge at The University of Oxford, where she focussed on the synthesis of heterobimetallic main group compounds for small molecule activation. She moved to Grenoble in November 2022 to work jointly with Vincent Artero at CEA and Carole Duboc at UGA, investigating bimetallic complexes for electrocatalytic CO2 reduction.
