About Patrice SIMON

I'm Professor in Material Science at Université Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France, in the CIRIMAT Laboratory (UMR CNRS 5085).

I obtained my Ph.D. in 1995 in Material Science at Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Toulouse. I joined the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers in Paris in 1996 where I was appointed as Assistant Professor, and finally moved to Université Paul Sabatier in 2001.

Junior member of the Institut Universitaire de France (2007-2012), I was awarded with a ERC Advanced Grant in 2012, on the study of ion transport: in carbon nanopres (IONACES project).

My research is focused on the synthesis and the characterization of nanostructured materials for electrochemical energy.
