Dr. Damien VOIRY received his MS degree in materials science from the University of Bordeaux in 2007. He completed his PhD on chemistry of nanostructured carbons from the University of Bordeaux in 2010. From 2011 to 2016, he was a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Professor Manish Chhowalla at Rutgers University, USA. His postdoctoral work dealt with phase engineering of exfoliated transition metal dichalcogenides nanosheets for electronic and electrocatalysis applications. In 2016, Damien was appointed as a CNRS researcher at the European Institute of Membranes (IEM) at the University of Montpellier. He was awarded an ERC starting Grant in 2018 for investigating the electrocatalytic performance of two-dimensional materials towards the electrochemical reduction of CO2 and their integration into vdW heterostructures for artificial photosynthesis.
Damien’s research group focuses on exfoliated two-dimensional materials and heterostructures for energy and nanofluidic applications.
