Bouchard, Louis S.


Bouchard Louis

Short Biography

Dr. Bouchard obtained a bachelor’s degree in physics and business management from McGill University in Montréal, Canada, a Master’s degree in medical biophysics from the University of Toronto and a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Princeton University. His doctoral dissertation explores the use of multiple quantum coherence and long-range dipolar interactions in condensed matter to characterize heterogeneous material microstructure. During his stay in the laboratory of Alex Pines at the University of California, Berkeley he developed novel approaches and methodologies to portable, low-field NMR and MRI, microfluidics and hyperpolarization methods to the study of chemical reactions. He joined the UCLA faculty during the summer of 2008 to pursue research in physical chemistry.

Research Interests

UCLA Chemistry Bouchard Lab

Professor Louis Bouchard and his group conduct experimental research in physical & analytical chemistry, materials and bioengineering. The group is involved in the development of engineering solutions for immunotherapy, contrast agents & drug delivery systems for biomedical imaging, biosensing, tissue engineering, high frequency electromagnetics, condensed matter physics and catalysis.

His group combines a range of laboratory and techniques from chemical synthesis to instrumentation development and various spectroscopies based on specific needs of the research.

We are currently recruiting students to work on three projects (machine learning, molecular kinetics and quantum computing).
