material chemistry, nanoscience, hybrid materials

Dr Roberta Brayner was recruited by Paris Diderot University in 2003 to expand its nanotechnology program. She conducts basic and applied research at the intersection of chemistry, physics and biology towards (i) the development of hybrid “living” materials based on micro-algae and nanoparticle interactions and also (ii) the toxicological impact of nanoparticles. Her research has been supported by grants from ANR ECCO and NanoSciences-Ile de France. Dr Roberta Brayner obtained her BS in Chemical Engineering in Brazil in 1995 and her Ph.D. in Chemistry from Paris Diderot University in 2001. She is a frequent contributor to Journal of Material Chemistry, Chemistry of Materials, Nano Letters, and other peer-reviewed journals.
