Dr Alexandra Apostoluk, aged 39, has been working on the emission of polymer and inorganic materials since her Engineering and MSc at Wroclaw University of Technology (Poland) and through her PhD in 2000-2003 at Université d’Angers. In 2003, she joined the Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique (CEA) in Saclay for a 2-year post-doc on polymer semiconductors. In 2005 she worked as a lecturer and researcher at the University of Technology of Troyes. In 2006 she became an associate professor at INSA Lyon, working on III-V and II-VI nanostructures. She has a rich experience in both national and international academic and industrial research projects or networks and educational projects (ANR, European FP6 and FP7, Egide project Osmosis and Polonium, French GDR, Tempus) and participated in 3 ANR projects. She is a co-author more than 24 scientific papers, 2 book chapters and was 6 times an invited speaker in international conferences. She worked as an invited researcher at Thamassat University (Bangkok, Thailand), KEIO University (Yokohama, Japan) and at Tokyo University (Tokyo, Japan). Thanks to her training and thematic and geographic mobility (Poland, France, Thailand, Japan), she acquired a polyvalent expertise in the nanomaterial fabrication and deposition techniques, structural properties of polymer and crystalline materials, electrical and optical properties of metallic oxides and in the field of optical spectroscopy and time resolved spectroscopy. She speaks 6 languages and her hobbies are strongly related to mountaineering.
