Wendy Queen offers a highly innovative approach to the design and production of hybrid organic/inorganic materials for applications in the field of separating gas mixtures, the storage of small molecular entities and catalysis. Based on the systematic study of molecular factors and conditions influencing the crystallization properties of metal-organic materials, her research program aims to create a comprehensive platform for design, synthesis and characterization of porous materials.

Of particular interest among her proposed projects are the production of hybrid materials with controlled crystallization and the study of interactions between hybrid materials and “host” molecules.
These projects, combining materials engineering and characterization techniques by electron microscopy, spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction, bring a research platform dedicated to the development of new hybrid materials at the EPFL Valais Wallis campus.
