Biographie

Moi, c’est Aurore Richel. Actuellement Professeur Ordinaire à l’Université de Liège (Belgique), je suis Docteur en Sciences Chimiques de formation.

Ma spécialité ? La chimie des ressources renouvelables. Je tente de comprendre comment transformer les ressources renouvelables en produits d’intérêt valorisables, en molécules, en nouveaux plastiques ou en énergie et biocarburants. Je m’intéresse à concevoir des procédés respectueux de l’environnement, qui permettent de satisfaire nos besoins en matériaux ou en énergie, sans compromettre les besoins des générations futures. Un sacré challenge …

Mon parcours ? J’ai intégré le campus de Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech de l’Université de Liège en 2008. J’ai été nommée pour y développer le domaine émergent de la « chimie verte ». J’ai successivement occupé toutes les fonctions, « Première Assistante » puis « Chargée de cours », j’ai finalement été ordonnée « Professeur Ordinaire » en 2017. Je dirige à l’Université de Liège, depuis plusieurs années, le Laboratoire de Biomasse et Technologies Vertes, qui est reconnu pour son activité d’excellence en « chimie verte et ressources renouvelables ». Je suis l’auteur de plus d’une centaine de publications scientifiques, de plusieurs chapitres de livre, de brevets et même d’un livre autour de ma thématique de spécialité.

Mes journées ? J’enseigne à l’Université de Liège, du niveau bachelier au niveau master, la chimie des ressources renouvelables. Je dirige aussi des recherches dans cette thématique, encadrant une vingtaine de doctorants. Je publie nos résultats et tente de les faire connaitre à la communauté scientifique. Mon travail et celui de mon équipe fait à présent preuve d’une reconnaissance sur la scène internationale. J’ai ainsi créé une plateforme internationale de recherche coopérative sur les procédés durables de conversion de la biomasse végétale en partenariat avec l’Université de Kobé (Japon) et Texas A&M (USA). Je suis aussi fortement impliquée dans la formation des femmes scientifiques issues des pays en développement ou émergents avec plus de 25 étudiantes (master ou doctorat) accueillies au sein de mon laboratoire de Gembloux au cours des 5 dernières années.
