Keynote Speaker

Philippe Knauth obtained a PhD in physical chemistry from Saarland University (Germany) in 1987 and the habilitation in materials science at Aix Marseille University in 1996.

He is currently Professor of Materials Chemistry and Head of the Department of Chemistry at Aix Marseille University. He is fellow of the French Chemical Society (“membre distingu”) and was appointed Visiting Scholar at MIT (Cambridge, USA) in 1997-98 and 2013, invited Professor at the National Institute of Materials Science(Tsukuba, Japan) 2007 and 2010, and invited Professor at the University of Rome Tor Vergata in 2009 and 2011.

He is member of the editorial boards of the “Journal of Electroceramics”, “Membranes”, “Frontiers in Energy Research”, and the “Journal of Nanomaterials”.

His research interests include solid state ionics and ionic conduction near interfaces; nanostructured materials for energy storage and conversion; polymer electrolytes for electrochemical energy technologies; lithium-ion microbatteries based on tio2 nanotubes and nanocrystalline ceo2.

190 articles in international journals (7300 citations, h index = 43), 7 co-edited books, 6 patents and 75 invited, keynote and plenary talks at international conferences.

Topic of Keynote: Nanophase-separated ionomers for energy and environment
