Frédéric Jaouen is a CNRS research director at the Charles Gerhardt Institute in Montpellier, and a member of The Electrochemical Society, International Society of Electrochemistry, and Société Chimique de France. His research interests are the synthesis, structural and electrochemical characterisation of electrocatalysts based on Earth-abundant elements for catalysing key reactions for fuel cells: O2 electroreduction in proton-exchange-membrane and anion-exchange-membrane fuel cells, H2 electro-oxidation in anion-exchange-membrane fuel cells. The synthesis, ex situ and in situ characterisation, implementation in electrochemical devices and the study of their operando degradation mechanisms are central to his work.
