Curriculum Vitae

Dr Noémie Ott studied electrochemistry, materials science and process engineering at Phelma, Grenoble Institute of Technology, France. She obtained her PhD from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in collaboration with the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (Empa) in 2014. In 2014, she was awarded a SNF early postdoc.mobility fellowship to conduct a research stay at Monash University, Australia, in the group of Prof. Nick Birbilis, where she worked on establishing the fundamental correlation between microstructure evolution during aging and corrosion behavior of Al-Cu-Li alloys. From 2017 to 2022, she worked as a research scientist in the Laboratory for Joining Technologies and Corrosion at Empa. In September 2022, Noémie joined the “Materials Engineering” group at OST.

Noémie is an established expert in the characterization of corrosion/oxidation processes occurring at the solid/liquid interface of high-performance industrial materials, using metallurgical, electrochemical, and analytical techniques. Her interests lie in the understanding and control of materials behavior exposed to a defined environment, aiming at improving the environmental impact of industrial processes, such as anodizing or electrochemical deposition.

Noémie is Chair of the Young European Federation of Corrosion (YEFC) and Associate Editor for Frontiers for Young Minds.
