Héloïse Thérien-Aubin studied chemistry at the Université de Montréal in Canada. She received her Ph.D. studying the diffusion in polymer systems using NMR spectroscopy in the group of Prof. Julian Zhu. Subsequently, she became a postdoctoral fellow in the department of Materials Science and Engineering at Cornell University, developing on antifouling polymer brush coatings with Prof. Christopher K. Ober. Afterward, she joined the group of Prof. Eugenia Kumacheva at the University of Toronto and worked on the self-assembly of nanoparticles, and the preparation of nanostructured materials and functional soft matter. In 2016, she joined the MPI-P as a group leader in the department of Prof. Katharina Landfester. Her research interests range from the conformation and dynamic of polymers in confined environments to the preparation of addressable nanocolloids.
