Thierry Lalot

In 1991, Thierry Lalot passes his PhD in polymer chemistry at the Pierre and Marie Curie University (Paris 6). The same year he is elected as an assistant professor in the same university and joins the Laboratory of Macromolecular Synthesis, a laboratory associated to CNRS. In the early 2000's he starts teaching Materials Chemistry in the training of heritage conservation-restoration at the Panthéon-Sorbonne University. In 2008, he joins this university as a professor and as the head of the conservation-restoration department. In 2021, he leaves those responsibilities. His main and recent research topics deal with the reconstructions of medieval recipes for colors preparation, and the history of the conservation-restoration training. His publications are much more focused on his first scientific life at the Pierre and Marie Curie University.
