Current status : Maître de Conférence/Lecturer at Université Joseph Fourier, Laboratoire des Technologies de la Microélectronique (Grenoble, France).
She was a member of the Plasmas froids/Low Temperature Plasmas Team from 2006 - 2010 as a PhD student and Postdoc.

Emilie Despiau-Pujo obtained her PhD titled Etching mechanisms of III-V compounds in inductively-coupled chlorine plasmas in 2009 from Ecole Polytechnique (Paris, France).
During the 4 years she spent working at LPP, her main research interests were plasma etching for photonics/optoelectronics, chemico-physical processes in low pressure chlorine plasmas, dynamics of radiofrequency inductive discharges and fundamentals of plasma-surface interactions. She worked on a wide variety of plasma simulations (including Molecular Dynamics, global and 2D fluid/hybrid models) with a particular emphasis on combined experimental/numerical studies. During both her PhD and her postdoc, she was involved in various collaborations and spent several months working in US research groups, most notably at UC Berkeley (Graves lab in 2006, EECS in 2010).
She took up her current teaching/research position (chaire UJF-CEA) in September 2010 and is now working at the Laboratoire des Technologies de la Microélectronique (Grenoble, France). Her current research activities deal with plasma deposition (PE-MOCVD) and elaboration of thin films/nanostructured materials for memory and nanoelectronic devices. She is also interested in the fundamental understanding of pulsed plasmas processes and their potential applications to transfer patterns on new materials such as graphene.
