Phone: (418) 656-2131 #16530


Professional background :

  • Engineering studies at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Mulhouse, specialization field: formulation and cosmetics, 2007-2011.
  • Second year masters, specialization field: Formulation of colloidal systems and polymers, 2010-2011.
  • License in Science and Technology, specialization in Physics and Chemistry, Université de  Haute-Alsace, Mulhouse, 2009.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Science, specialization in Physics and Chemistry, Lycée Charles de Gaulles de Compiègne, 2005.
  • Six month internship (diploma pre-requisite) at Owens Corning OCV Chambery International on the development of new alkali-resistant glasses. This project allowed the use of a mixing plan, and the establishment of an alkali-resistance test. (March 2011-August 2011)
  • One year internship at SABIC Innovative Plastics (Netherlands) on the development of fire retardants in new resins based on siloxane-copolycarbonate. This project allowed Patricia Hee to use different tests as well as extruders and injection machines. It led to the production of four resins with very interesting performances. (2009-2010)
  • Two month internship at the Laboratory of Organic, bio-organic and macromolecular Chemistry (COBM) of ENSCMu on the formulation of expandable polystyrene for bottomless molds. (2009)


Research fields :

Patricia Hee specializes in inorganic chemistry, particularly in the formulation of products, from paints and polymers to glasses and cosmetics. Through her internships, her interests evolved toward the field of glasses.


Current projects :

Patricia Hee is in her first year of doctoral studies, as part of a joint thesis between COPL (Quebec, Canada) and ICMCB (Bordeaux, France). Her project involves the development of heavy oxide glasses: gallates, within the scope of nonlinear optics and glass shaping in the form of glass fibres. The project pertains to the fabrication of optical fibres or at least bulk glasses with suitable non-linear optical properties for transmission in near infrared glasses.
