Gabriel Loget is an early-career researcher (CNRS). He received his Master’s degree in Molecular Chemistry from the University of Rennes and his PhD in Physical Chemistry from the University of Bordeaux (Prof. A. Kuhn - 2012).
After that, he performed a postdoctoral stay at the University of California, Irvine in the group of Prof. Robert M. Corn. In 2014, he was awarded an Alexander-von-Humboldt postdoctoral fellowship for doing his research at the Friedrich-Alexander Universität of Erlangen-Nürnberg in the group of Prof. Patrik Schmuki. In 2015, he joined the Institut des Sciences Chimiques de Rennes (University of Rennes, France) as a CNRS researcher.
He is the co-author of >40 articles, 2 book chapters, and 2 patents.
