Claire Bourguignon

Master 2 Student

In 2020, Claire obtained her Bachelor degree in Physics and Chemistry at the Sorbonne University. She is currently finishing her last year of her Master’s degree in Inorganic Chemistry and Solid-state Physics at Paris-Saclay University.

Over the years, Claire has had the opportunity to carry out several internships. In 2019, she worked at the Organic Chemistry Laboratory in Milan’s University, under the supervision of D. Passarella to modify anticancer compounds to induce the formation of self-assembled nanoparticles . In 2021, she joined the Hydrogen Team at the Crigen (R&D branch of Engie in Stains), under the supervision of L. Baraton to enhance the efficiency of TiO2 photo-anodes to produce hydrogen in a photo-assisted electrolyser. As she was really interested in the subject, she decided to keep on working on a similar project and joined in 2022 the SolHyCat team to work under the supervision of M. Chavarot-Kerlidou on the preparation and characterization of NiO photo-cathodes for applications in photo-electrocatalysis.
