Dr. Etienne Bouyer joined the CEA (the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission) at Grenoble in 2004 and served as head of the Processes and Components for Energy Laboratory from 2006-2011, and adjunct director of the New Technology for Energy Program since 2011. Prior to that, he was from 1997-2003 research scientist within the Institute of Technical Thermodynamics at DLR (German Aerospace Center) in Stuttgart, Germany. Before moving to CEA, Dr. Bouyer spent two years for the SOPREMA group within its R&D Central Laboratory in Strasbourg, France.
He received his Bachelor in Ceramic Science and Engineering from Limoges University (1990) France, M.A.Sc in Material Science & Engineering from both Paris XI/Orsay University and National Institute for Nuclear Science and Technology (1991) France, and Ph.D. degrees in Chemical Engineering from Sherbrooke University (1997) Canada, respectively.
Dr. Bouyer‘s research centers on inorganic material synthesis and processing mainly directed to new technology for energy applications (hydrogen technologies and renewable energy systems). More recently, the overall topic of material efficiency becomes one of its main subject of interest.
