Katya defended her PhD
Katya Goloviznina defended her PhD brilliantly in front of a jury composed of Ed Maginn (Notre Dame, USA), Céline Merlet (CNRS, Toulouse), Paul Madden (Oxford, UK) and Luca Monticelli (INSERM, Lyon). Katya is the first PhD of those who started in the group at ENS Lyon.
Seminar by Paulo Telles de Souza on Martini
Paulo Souza of the Molecular Biology and Structural Biochemistry lab (almost next-door) presented a great seminar to the group on the Martini force field for coarse-grained simulation of ionic liquids, with emphasis on the Martini 3 version for ionic liquids.

Paper on SAILs in Nature Materials
In a recent article in Nature Materials, from a collaboration with MIT (USA), Bristol (UK) and Perth (Australia) we describe the discovery of a new class of electrolytes, which can improve energy storage efficiency in supercapacitors. These detergent-like ionic liquids can self-assemble into sandwich-like bilayer structures on electrode surfaces. And that is very reason why they give better energy storage performance.

Presenting the Rossini Lecture during the ICCT-CALCON 2018 in Lake Tahoe, California, 5-10 Aug 2018. The Rossini Lecture is a major recognition in the field of Chemical Thermodynamics awarded every two years by the IACT.
ANR Proposal LIQUI2D Funded
Our ANR proposal LIQUI2D, on the interfaces of ionic liquids with 2D nanomaterials, is funded! This is a collaboration with Sébastien Lebègue from CNRS and U Lorraine, and Paul-Henri Haumesser and Anass Benayad of CEA Grenoble.
France-Brasil Collaboration Project
Visit of prof. Rômulo Ando of U São Paulo, within the USP-COFECUB collaboration project between our lab and the Instituto de Química, USP, including prof. Mauro Ribeiro.
MIT Inditex Seed Fund
An exploratory project on sustainable technologies for recycling of textiles involving Prof. Greg McKinley of MIT, Dr. Pablo Sánchez and Prof. José Legido of Vigo, and my group was awarded an MIT Inditex Seed Fund. We look forward to this new collaboration!
