Krystelle Lionti, born 1986 in France, is currently a Research Staff Member at IBM Almaden Research Center (San Jose, CA) working on the integration of porous ultra low-k (ULK) materials under the supervision of Dr. Daniel Sanders.
Krystelle pursued her graduate studies at INSA (Lyon, France) and obtained her Master's Degree in Materials Science in 2009. In 2012, she obtained her PhD degree in Inorganic Chemistry from the University of Lyon (France) where she developed hybrid Organic/Inorganic silica coatings via the sol-gel route on polymeric substrates for protection purposes. Her expertise in thin film preparation and characterization subsequently brought her to the Hybrid Polymeric Materials group of IBM ARC in 2013: her current work focuses on the chemical and mechanical characterization of porous organosilicate thin films for microelectronics applications and the development of new processes for the damage free integration of ULK materials.
