Ghislaine Vantomme is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry at TU Eindhoven. She studied chemistry at l'Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan (France) from 2006 to 2010. After a stay in the laboratory of Prof. Koji Nakanishi and Prof. Nina Berova at Columbia University (New York), she received a M.Sc. from the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris). In 2014, she defended a PhD under the supervision of Prof. Jean-Marie Lehn at the Institut de Science et d'Ingénierie SupramoléculairesUniversité de Strasbourg on dynamic covalent chemistry. Switching to materials chemistry, she joined TU Eindhoven as a postdoctoral fellow to work with Prof. Bert Meijer and developed photo-actuators based on liquid crystals networks in collaboration with Prof. Dirk Broer. In 2019, she was appointed Assistant Professor at TU Eindhoven. Her research interests include the understanding of the fundamentals of supramolecular chemistry and their translation into adaptive materials.
