Eugen Andreiadis

Current position : Research Scientist CEA

Eugen S. Andreiadis obtained his Chemical Engineer degree in 2005 as Valedictorian at the Polytechnic University of Bucharest, Romania. He received his PhD degree from the University of Grenoble in 2009, working as a Marie Curie fellow on lanthanide coordination complexes in the group of Marinella Mazzanti at CEA Grenoble. After a first postdoctoral position at Chimie Paris for studying functionalized gold nanoclusters, he worked in the group of Vincent Artero at CEA Grenoble on molecular catalytic systems for hydrogen production. He later joined the laboratory of Marc Fontecave in College de France for developing catalysts for the reduction of carbon dioxide to valuable fuels. Since 2013 he is a permanent research scientist at the Nuclear Energy Division of the CEA. His current research interests are in the coordination chemistry and separation of heavy metals, particularly for the development of efficient solvent extraction processes for the recycling of nuclear fuels.
