Noémie Elgrishi is a native of France. She received her higher education in Paris from École Normale Supérieure and Université Pierre et Marie Curie – Paris VI. During her Master's degree she studied host-guest interactions in molecular cages with Johnathan Nitschke at the University of Cambridge and energy storage through photocatalytic HX splitting with Daniel Nocera at MIT. In 2015 she completed her PhD under the guidance of Marc Fontecave in Collège de France in Paris investigating electrochemical CO2 reduction catalyzed by molecular complexes of first row transition metals. She then moved to UNC – Chapel Hill in 2015 to pursue postdoctoral studies under the mentorship of Jillian Dempsey working on mechanistic investigations of proton-coupled electron transfer (PCET) processes.
She joined the LSU chemistry department as an Assistant Professor in the fall of 2017.
