Solène Gentil

PhD Student

Solène was born in 1990 in France.  She is a graduate of the University Joseph Fourier in 2014, where she received a bachelor degree in Biology and Chemistry and a master degree in Nanochemistry and Nanoobjects. After getting a grant from the ARCANE Excellence Laboratory Network (LABEX), she began a PhD in collaboration with the group of Dr. Vincent Artero at the CEA and the group of Dr. Serge Cosnier (BEA, DCM) at the molecular chemistry Department in Grenoble. Her current research deals with the design of an enzymatic/ biomimetic H2/O2 biofuel cell, under the supervision of Dr. Vincent Artero (CEA) and Dr. Alan Le Goff (DCM, team BEA).
