Jasmine Viger-GravelAfter receiving a bachelor’s degree in Science at the University of Ottawa, Canada, Jasmine Viger-Gravel remained in the same University as an FRQNT Doctoral Scholar. There she completed a Ph.D in Chemistry (2011-2015) with a specialization in solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy under the supervision of Prof. David L. Bryce.

She then broadened her NMR education with postdoctoral positions in dynamic nuclear polarization enhanced NMR spectroscopy overseas, in the laboratories of Prof. Lyndon Emsley (EPFL, Switzerland – 2015-2018) and Dr. Anne Lesage (CRMN, Lyon, France – 2018-2020). Jasmine is a strong supporter of gender equality, and a proud recipient of the 2019 award for women in science L’Oréal-UNESCO Pour les Femmes et la Science.

As of June 2020, she joins the NMR team in the department of organic chemistry at the University of Geneva (Switzerland) as the NMR and spectroscopy platform leader. Jasmine fosters collaborations within the department and aims to develop her independent research group. Her research interests are diverse in nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, quantum chemistry, non-covalent interactions, catalysts, nanoparticles, gels and more. She will also teach organic chemistry to 1st-year medical students and spectroscopy to 2nd-year chemistry and biochemistry students.
