Dr. Louise Ruyet: Building a New Multipurpose Fluorinated Molecule

Bonjour! I am Louise, a French girl starting her new research project in Chemistry in the city of Münster!

The goal of my research is to build new small, but complex and elegant fluorinated molecules. Although I am doing fundamental research, these new fluorinated molecules could be used in the pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, and material science industries!

Fun Fact: I love to try new things and to seek discomfort! For example, I am afraid of heights, so I am learning bouldering. My PhD’s research mainly focused on metallocatalysis, so I am now doing a post-doc on a subject where no metals are used! For me, research is more than making scientific discoveries and exploring new fields, it is also about discovering new things about yourself!
