Nicolas QUEYRIAUX was born in 1988 in Paris, France. He is a graduate of the University Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris 6). He joined in 2012 the Life Science Division of CEA as a graduate student in the group of Dr Vincent Artero with a project related to the design of new photo- and electro-catalysts for hydrogen production and their subsequent grafting onto conducting surfaces. He is also interested in the characterization of intermediate species generated during the course of catalytic processes.
