Capucine Sassoye received her PhD degree in 2001 at the University of Versailles Saint Quentin (UVSQ, France) in 2001. After postdoctoral fellowships at Notre Dame University (USA) and the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA, USA), she is currently assistant professor at Sorbonne Université (France). Her research deals with inorganic nanomaterials, coupling the sol-gel chemistry with advanced process to tune both macroscopic shape and texture, with sustainability in mind, concerning both material synthesis and its further applications. She is particularly interested in relationship between the atomic structure and properties and has recently developed PDF analysis in her laboratory. She has so far authored/co-authored 32 peerreviewed journal articles.
