Education and experience
Dr Frédéric Peruch received his Engineering degree from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie et de Physique de Bordeaux (ENSCBP) in 1994. He then did his one-year military duty as a scientific at LCPO under the supervision of Dr A. Deffieux, working on cationic polymerization of vinyl ethers. He obtained his PhD at the University of Bordeaux 1 in 1998 for studies in the field of coordination polymerization of olefins under the supervision of Drs Alain Deffieux and Henri Cramail. After a post-doctoral stay with Pr W. Risse at the University College of Dublin (Ireland) on coordination polymerization of norbornene, he joined the Institut Charles Sadron (Strasbourg) as Junior CNRS researcher in 1999 to work on coordination polymerization of olefins and macromonomers. He then moved back to LCPO in 2006 and became Senior CNRS researcher in 2013.
Frédéric Peruch authored 87 research articles as listed on the HAL database, 4 book chapters and 3 patents. He presented 58 oral communications (32 on invitation) and 30 posters.
