About Professor Gabbaï

François Gabbaï was born in 1968 in Montpellier (France).  Before joining the research group of A. H. Cowley at the University of Texas at Austin, he studied chemistry at the Université de Bordeaux (France). In 1992 and 1993, he fulfilled his French National Duties by taking part in a Franco-American cooperation under the supervision of G. Bertrand and A. H. Cowley.  After completing his Ph.D. degree in 1994, he was awarded an Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship as well as Marie Curie Fellowship from the European Commission which allowed him to work with H. Schmidbaur at the Technische Universität München (Germany) as a postdoctoral fellow and later as an “Habilitand”.  Upon completion of his habilitation work in 1998, he joined Texas A&M University where he now holds the Arthur E. Martell Chair of Chemistry.  His research interests revolve around the chemistry of p-block and late transition metal elements with applications in the domain of materials chemistry and molecular recognition.
