Jean de la Verpilliere
Jean graduated from Ecole Centrale Paris with Masters in Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautics. As of 2013 he joined the Nanotechnology Doctoral Training Centre (NanoDTC). He is the 2013 George and Lillian Schiff scholar, and is also supported by a CHESS studentship. He is a member of King’s college.
Jean is working on gas-phase synthesis of high throughput self-assembled carbon nanotubes under co-supervision of Dr Michael de Volder and Dr Adam Boies (CUED). The project aims at producing novel nanostructured materials by scalable processes, with a focus on energy storage and water purification applications.
