Mathieu S. Prévot

Born in Ithaca, NY (USA) from French parents, Mathieu Prévot studied at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon (ENS de Lyon, France), where he obtained his Bachelor Degree (License) in Chemistry in 2010. He then pursued a Master degree at the same institution, which led him to perform a research internship in the research groups of Prof. Curtis Berlinguette and Prof. Simon Trudel at the University of Calgary (UofC, Canada) during which he studied the electrocatalytic properties of amorphous metal oxides thin films for the oxygen evolution reaction.

After obtaining his Master degree in Chemistry in 2012, he joined the research group of Prof. Kevin Sivula at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL, Switzerland) where he performed is doctoral research, which consisted primarily in developing and studying metal oxide and metal chalchogenide semiconductors as novel visible-light absorbers. These materials were then tested as photoelectrodes in photoelectrochemical cells for solar hydrogen production. For this work, he succesfully obtained is Ph.D. diploma in 2017.

Mathieu then joined the group of Prof. Omar Yaghi at the University of California, Berkeley (USA), where he studied the electrocatalytic and water harvesting properties of metal-organic frameworks between 2017 and 2019.

After returning to France, he joined the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) in 2020. Since then, he has been developing his research activities at the Institute for Research in Catalysis and Environment of Lyon (IRCELYON, France) as a CNRS junior researcher.
