Dr. Laurent BARATON is a Master graduated from Université Claude Bernard Lyon I in organic chemistry and Engineer in Chemical Engineering from CPE Engineering school. He obtained his PhD in Physical Chemistry in 2004 from the Université Orsay Paris XII working in molecular electronics at CEA Saclay. He then worked in research institutions such as CEA and Ecole Polytechnique. His research interests were the synthesis, characterization and integration in practical devices of nanomaterials such as metallic nanostructures, silicon nanowires, carbon nanotubes and graphene. Joining ENGIE in 2014, he is currently a Senior Research Engineer in the “Hydrogen” team at ENGIE Lab CRIGEN, working at the assessment and promotion of emerging technologies for the enhancement of existing industrial processes efficiency and the development of new commercial activities related to the H2 value chain. His current research activities are industrial applications of photocatalysis, nanomaterials as chemical catalysts and biocatalysis for hydrogen production. He is also Group Key Expert on nanomaterials.
