Prof. Abdelhafed Taleb
Abdelhafed Taleb is an associate professor at Sorbonne University in the “Institut de recherche de Chimie Paris” (IRCP / ENSCP), where he is leading the group “Elaboration and Modelling of Nanostructred Films” group. He received his PhD diploma in nanomaterials science under the supervision of Prof. Marie Paul Pileni from UPMC in Paris in 1998. During his PhD, he pointed out a new collective’s properties due to nanoparticles organization. In 2000, he joined the UPMC, where he worked on the synthesis of inorganic-organic hybrid nanomaterials and the development of new strategies to assemble them in different structures of coating. Since 2009, he leads the group focusing on the design of nanostructured films with novel architectures and their applications in different areas such as electrochemical sensing, self-cleaning (superhydrophobic) coating, photovoltaic (DSSC), batteries, anticorrosion coating, magnetic storage supports etc … He has more than 18 years of experience in nanomaterial synthesis, characterizations, the study of their physical properties and their applications. He authored and co-authored a number of publications and patents on various topics, focusing on advanced materials and their applications.
