In 2013, Dr. Nicolas Zivic received his Master Degree in organic chemistry from the University of Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines (France).

In 2014, he joined the laboratory of Dr. Didier Gigmes at the Faculty of Sciences of Aix-Marseille University (France) where he obtained his Ph.D. (2017). Under the supervision of Dr. Frédéric Dumur, he developed his research by focusing on the design and synthesis of new photoinitiators able to initiate a photopolymerization reaction under soft irradiation conditions. During this period, he collaborated with Prof. Jacques Lalevée of the University of Haute-Alsace in Mulhouse (France) expanding his knowledge in photopolymerization mechanisms.


Since October 2017, he has worked as post-doctoral researcher in Polymat in the group of Prof. David Mecerreyes. Within Dr. Haritz Sardon's team, he carries on his research studying photosensitive molecules able to catalyze the polymerization of biodegradable polymers.
