Delphine Marris-Morini's Interview, ERC Starting Grant 2014 laureate
A few words on Delphine Marris-Morrini and her professional career
A graduate of Télécom Paris, Delphine Marris-Morini received her PhD from the University of Paris Sud on the development of high speed silicon modulators.
She is now a lecturer at the insitut d’Electronique Fondamentale (University of Paris Sud/CNRS) since 2005 and she is also a junior member of the Institut Universitaire de France (IUF) since 2013. Her research works focus on high speed optoelectronics devices for silicon photonics.
An ERC laureate
Delphine Marris-Morini received her European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant in 2014.
She is rewarded for her project INsPIRE, which aims at using chip-scaled integrated photonics for the mid-infrared while also profiting from large and mature manufacturing processes. They will offer low-energy and low-priced devices that are compact and light for applications focusing on portable spectroscopic detection systems. This project is developed in collaboration with the laboratory of L-Ness (Politechnico di Milano, Italie).
In this ten-minute web magazine, Delphine Marris-Morini shares her experience on the steps she had to go through to present her application and get this prestigious financing. In this interview, she also addresses the new scientific opportunities that the European financing offer.
Let’s be reminded that the ERC Starting Grants aim at supporting new and the most talented researchers that are willing to constitute their own research team and lead independent research in Europe. For a period of up to five years, the granted subvention may reach 2 million euros.
