Current members

Agnideep DAS, 2nd year PhD student

Agnideep  obtained his Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Chemistry from Visva-Bharati University, India in 2016 and moved to the Indian Institute of Technology (ITT) Indore, India for a Masters of Science in Chemistry. After completing his M.Sc. in July 2018, he joined the OMECA team at the University of Strasbourg through an IdEx (International Doctoral Program) PhD fellowship. Agnideep is working on the synthesis and characterization and catalytic application of new redox-active ligands and their 3d metal complexes.

Cheriehan HESSIN, 1st year PhD student

Cheriehan was born in Egypt and raised in Paris. She received her B.Sc (2017) and M.Sc (2019) degrees with a specialization in Molecular and Supramolecular Chemistry from Sorbonne Université in Paris. After a Master internship in the team of Pr. Anna Proust at the Institut Parisien de Chimie Moléculaire, she joined the group in October 2019 to work on “Biomimetic redox-active earth-abundant metal complexes for synthetic challenges” under the supervision of Pr. Marine Desage-El Murr and Dr. Sylvie Choua. She is passionate about transition metals, their properties, synthetic chemistry, catalysis and loves interdisciplinary projects !

Yufeng REN, 4th year PhD student working in Paris, co-supervised with Sorbonne Universités

Marie-Julie TILLY, M2 student, co-supervised with BCB team

Marie-Julie is a MSc student in Molecular and Supramolecular chemistry at Strasbourg University. She joined OMECA team in March 2017 for a Bachelor internship, then in March 2018 for Master 1 research project and now for Master 2 internship, in collaboration with BCB team. Marie-Julie is working on the radical trifluoromethylation of proteins with redox-active catalysts under the supervision of Pr. Marine Desage-El Murr and Dr. Laurent Raibaut, from BCB team. She likes pluridisciplinary projects with physics and biology aspects !
