Adrien Carretero Genevrier NanoChemLab

Principal investigator


Chargé de recherche CNRS (CNRS-CRCN permanent research position) section 08.


1979, Sevilla (Spain)

Adrien Carretero Genevrier is a CNRS Researcher at the Montpellier Institute of Electronic (IES) since January 2016. He obtained his PhD in 2010 in Materials Science from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Spain) at the Materials Institute of Barcelona (ICMAB) and then moved for three postdoctoral years at the Collège de France in Paris. His research aims at understanding the growth mechanisms of new functional oxides nanostructures synthesized by soft chemistry, relevant to integrate sensing and harvesting energy functionalities in MEMS and other resonant systems.

Thus, his scientific interests span over a wide range of fields including soft chemistry routes to grow 1D functional complex oxides, crystal engineering, nanofabrication, template-assisted synthesis of inorganic gels, and crystalline nanostructured oxide coatings for sensor devices. He has been awarded the Starting Grant of the European Research Council (ERC 2019), the young researcher award, French National Research Agency (ANR 2016), and the outstanding Award for the PhD in Materials Science from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (2012).

To date, he is the joint inventor of two US patents and has published more than 40 articles in high impact international journals such as Science, Nature Communications, JACS, Chem.Soc.Rev, Advanced Materials or Advanced Functional Materials.
