Team

Dr. Yaovi Holade plus all of his group members

We are advocate of inclusion and diversity in society and in research. We value all forms of diversity, so everyone is welcome as long as you are a team player, because our golden dream is to join our voice to those from all over the world and who continue [by their means] to create an inclusive culture

PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR (PI)

Yaovi Holade, PhD, MRSC

Sept. 2016-now: Permanent Assistant Professor, Electrochemical Sciences, ENSCM & IEM, Montpellier, France. Office: 0.17

July 2019-now: Head of the internship & corporate relations office at ENSCM, France

2016: Postdoc, University of Utah, Utah, USA (Resarch Group of Prof. Shelley D. Minteer)

2015: PhD in Chemistry and Electrochemistry, University of Poitiers, Poitiers, France. (Sup. Prof. K. Boniface Kokoh & Dr. Karine Servat)

Our team is member of the “IEM’ synergy group of 4PIs”: Dr. Yaovi Holade, Dr. Julien Cambedouzou (visit his team), Dr. Sophie Tingry, and Prof. David CORNU. Their mission is to address research problems too ambitious and interdisciplinary to be dealt by a single PI working alone with his team. They leverage their backgrounds to advance materials & membranes end-uses in energy, health, and environmental. Look at our publication list for the outputs of joint research (when it is possible to make them public!).
