Title: "Electroactive organic materials for batteries and Li-ion capacitors" / Institut des Matériaux Jean Rouxel, CNRS, France
Dr. Joel Gaubicher research activity is focused on the electrochemical storage field since 1998. After obtaining a Ph.D. from the P&M Curie University of Paris in 1998, he joined the University of Waterloo, Canada, in 1999 as a post-doctoral research fellow under the supervision of LF. Nazar where he worked on phosphate materials for Li ion battery. In 2001, he moved to the Institut des Matériaux Jean Rouxel in Nantes as a CNRS researcher and developed research programs dealing with Li Metal Polymer, Li-ion, Na-ion, Li/S batteries and supercapacitors. His main interests deal with solid state electrochemistry of inorganic materials as well as synthesis and electrochemical mechanisms mainly through operando characterizations. He was the recipient of a CNRS award for his research in 2013. More recently, he has been developing aqueous battery and supercapacitor chemistries based on organic electroactive materials. Up to date, he has published 70 articles, filed 16 patents and delivered 15 Invited talks.
