Huriye Akdas-Kiliç obtained her PhD degree at the University of Strasbourg I in 2002 under the supervision of Prof. M. W. Hosseini and Dr. E. Graf. She worked on Molecular tectonics, a strategy dealing with the design and synthesis of molecular tectons or active building blocks and their interconnection into molecular networks in the solid state. Then, she joined the group of Prof. H. L. Anderson in Oxford (UK) and worked on the synthesis of fused porphyrin dimers for non linear optics. In September 2004, she joined the group of Prof. O. Reinaud in Paris and worked on biomimetic chemistry. In september 2006, she joined the group “Organometalliques: Matériaux et Catalyse” in Rennes as Maître de Conférences and works currently with Jean-Luc Fillaut. The main research topic concerns the design and synthesis of chromophores for optoelectronic applications.
