Claire Pirim is associate professor of Physics at the University of Lille 1 Sciences et Technologies and undertakes her research in the ANATRAC research group since September 1st, 2014. She received her Ph.D. (2011) in Physical and Theoretical Chemistry from the University Pierre and Marie Curie, Paris VI (France) for her study of radical reactions relevant to astrochemical environments (such as H+CO) at very low temperatures in the condensed phase. She then joined the EPICS laboratory at the Georgia Institute of Technology (USA) in 2011 as a postdoctoral research fellow. Her research focused then on understanding the reactions occurring on Titan’s surface and aerosols within the atmosphere. The emphasis was on determining whether meteoritic mineral deposits or organics ices could catalyze the formation of more complex molecules possessing a prebiotic character under the influence of space weathering agents. Her field of research is related to surface science. As a member of the ANATRAC group, she now uses a wide range of spectroscopic and mass spectrometry techniques to characterize ices and soot particles. She also investigates the physical and chemical phenomena occurring at the solid-gas interface under conditions relevant to atmospheric and astrophysical environments.
