Dr Yanling Li , Research Ingeener, CNRS


Yanling, CNRS Research Engineer (1st class),

got involved in the magnetic study of molecular systems as she joined the lab in 2004.

She has become en expert in photomagnetic measurements and

she is now developing a research axis on the effect of pressure on switchable Charge Transfer systems.

Got her Habilitation in 2022
