Biographical Sketch Micheline Draye is a Professor of Chemistry at the University of Savoie, where she has worked since 2005. She is head of the “Green Chemistry” group and associate Director of the LCME, University of Savoie. Pr. Draye’s research interests include organic synthesis, use of non conventional activation methods for organic synthesis, ionic liquids, green/sustainable separation science and technology for pollution prevention and remediation, aqueous biphasic systems, hydrometallurgy and radiochemistry. She has also been an active advisor to governmental and industrial organizations (Duke COGEMA Stone & Webster, Nuclear Regulatory Commission, EDF, etc.) particularly concerning nuclear waste recycling and management. She served on the National Research Council’s Committee. She was for seven years an associate Professor at the Ecole Nationale Superieure de Chimie de Paris (ENSCP) where she conducted her research in the ‘separation processes and radiochemistry group’. She worked for two years as a visiting scientist in the Nuclear Engineering Department of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology ( after having received her PhD in Chemistry from the University of Lyon.
