Prof. Patrice Simon is Distinguished Professor of Material Science at the Université Paul Sabatier. His research deals with the synthesis and characterization of nanostructured materials for electrochemical energy storage sources, including electrochemical capacitors and Li-ion batteries. He is a specialist of interfacial electrochemistry and is more specifically interested in modification of the material / electrolyte interface for improving kinetics of ion adsorption and charge transfer in electrodes for energy storage applications.
P. Simon is Deputy Director of the French network on Electrochemical Energy Storage (RS2E, www.energie-rs2e.com) and former director of the Alistore European Research Institute (www.alistore.eu). He is member of the French Academy of Sciences since 2019.
