Metal-Organic Non-Trivial Structures: Chemistry and Function


Ali Trabolsi was born and raised in Lebanon. He received his BSc degree in chemistry from the Lebanese University in Beirut. In 2002, Ali moved to Strasbourg, France, where he obtained his master degree (2003) in analytical chemistry and his PhD (2006) under the supervision of Dr. Anne-Marie Albrecht-Gary. Ali then joined the group of Professor Fraser Stoddart at UCLA as a postdoctoral scholar where he spent one year before making the move with the Stoddart group to the Midwest, at Northwestern University, Evanston, IL. At the end of 2009, Ali joined KAUST in Saudi Arabia as a research scientist in the advanced membrane and porous materials center where he stayed two years. August 2011, Ali started his independent career as an Assistant Professor at New York University Abu Dhabi. At NYUAD, Aliís research interests are in designing Supramolecular Multifunctianol systems (Molecular switches, delivery systems) that can have applications in different fields. The Trabolsi group is also interested in advancing the understanding of nontrivial structures. Ali has co-authored more than 50 papers to date.
