Savéant. After a postdoc at the University of Rochester, he joined the faculty at the University of Paris Diderot as Associate Professor in 2001. He was promoted Professor in 2007. His area of expertise includes mechanisms and reactivity in electron transfer chemistry with particular recent emphasis on electrochemical and theoretical approaches to proton-coupled electron transfer processes and catalytic processes for small molecule activation. He is an expert in molecular electrochemistry and was a Visiting Scholar at Harvard University from 2016 to 2019 working with Prof. D. G. Nocera. In September 2019 he joined the Département de Chimie Moléculaire at the Université Grenoble-Alpes where he is leading the group “Electrochimie Moléculaire et Photochimie Redox”.
