Christophe Detrembleur obtained his PhD degree in 2001at the Center for Education and Research on Macromolecules (CERM), University of Liège, Belgium. His doctoral thesis focused on the development of new regulators for the controlled radical polymerization of (meth)acrylic monomers. He then joined BAYER AG in Leverkusen (Germany) in 2001, where he worked on the use of controlled radical polymerization processes for the design of new materials, and on the preparation of new high performance and low VOC polyurethane UV coatings. In October 2003, he left Bayer for a permanent Research Associate position at the University of Liege, funded by the National Fund for Scientific Research (FNRS). He was promoted Senior Research Associate in 2008 and Research Director in 2012.

The main research activities of his group deal with the precision design of novel copolymers by controlled radical polymerization techniques and the development of strategies to convert carbon dioxide onto novel functional polymers and bioplastics by sustainable processes.
