Geneviève Sauvé was born in Montréal, Canada. She obtained her B.Sc. in Chemistry from Condordia University in 1994 and her Ph.D. in chemistry from the California Institue of Techonology in 1999, working with Prof. Nathan S. Lewis on dye sensitized solar cells. She then spent some time at PPG Industries as a senior development chemist. In 2002, she joined Prof. Richard D. McCullough’s group at Carnegie Mellon University as a postdoctoral fellow. Her research focused on structure- property relationship studies of conjugated polymers and diblock copolymers, which included synthesis and testing in organic field effect transistors. Dr. Sauvé was also part of a multidisciplinary team to develop integrated sensors. In 2008, she went to Germany for one year and collaborated with physicists Dr. Fostiropoulos and Prof. Neher on organic photovoltaics. In 2009, she joined the faculty at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland OH, and was promoted to Associate professor in 2015. Prof. Sauvé received the NSF CAREER award in 2012. Her research encompasses synthesis and device-structure property studies of conjugated molecules and polymers for organic electronic applications, with an emphasis on n-type materials for organic solar cells.
