Prof. Laurence Masson
Laurence Masson is Professor of Physics at Aix-Marseille University (France). She received her Ph.D. in solid state physics in 1994 (University Paris-Sud) and defended her HDR diploma in materials science in 2007 (Aix-Marseille University). She is currently leader of the 2D ASAP (Two-dimensional Architectures Self Assembled and Properties) research team of the CINaM (Centre Interdisciplinaire de Nanoscience de Marseille) laboratory. She is also the coordinator of the master’s degree Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies at Aix-Marseille University. She is an expert in surface nanopatterning using bottom-up approaches and in template-controlled growth of nanostructures. She is a specialist of scanning probe microscopy. For the past fifteen years, her research interests have focused on 2D Xene materials, from their elaboration to the characterization of their peculiar properties.
