Alessandra Quadrelli is a CNRS researcher and the chairwoman of the Sustainability Chair of Chemical, Physics and Electronic Engineering School CPE Lyon since 2009, subsidized DOW France. In this context she organizes the “CO2 Forum “, a founding partner of the “SINCHEM: Sustainable Industrial Chemistry” Erasmus Mundus Doctoral Programme (2013-2018), led by the University of Bologna.
As a CNRS researcher since 2002, Alessandra is active in the field of organometallic chemistry applied to novel functional materials. Her research interests in C2P2 laboratory (CNRS / CPE Lyon / Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1) have focused on gaining molecular understanding of the interaction between organometallic precursors and solid surfaces, such as silica and more recently, metal organic frameworks, in route to N2 activation, heterogeneous catalysts and other active phases. She teaches undergraduate and graduate inorganic and organometallic chemistry courses at CPE Lyon and in University of Lyon.
