Dr. Samuel Bernard

University of Montpellier, France
Invited talk
Silicon- and boron-based non-oxide ceramics and nanocomposites through chemistry of modified organosilicon and organoboron polymers
Samuel BERNARD is Senior CNRS Researcher and got the position of Director of Research in October 2016. He received his Ph.D. in Nov. 2002 on Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Lyon (Laboratoire des Multimat¨¦riaux et Interfaces (LMI, UMR CNRS 5615)). Then, he obtained a post-doctorate position in Stuttgart (Germany) in Jan. 2003 at the Max-Planck-Institute f¨¹r Metalforschung on Polymer-Derived Si-B-C-N fibers. In Jan. 2004, he came back to LMI as junior CNRS researcher to be focused on the PDCs activity. Since the 1st of Sept. 2010, he is currently Senior CNRS Research Scientist at IEM. His work is focused on the preparation of polymer-derived silicon nitride / carbonitride / carbide-based materials as fibers, NCs and porous materials for structures and energy applications. He has co-authored more than 75 peer reviewed papers (H factor: 28), 19 proceedings, 6 patents, 10 book chapters, and has given 40 invited conference talks. He is the editor of a book and Chief Editor of the nanocomposite topic in the Nanomaterials & Nanotechnology journal. He is involved in the editorial board of Journal of Nanomaterials & Journal of Advanced Ceramics. He is the (co)-organizer of several international conferences. He received a recognition of his work done in ceramics (2011) from the Chinese Ceramic Society, the Solid State Chemistry Division Prize (2014) and a recognition of his work done in chemistry (2015) from the French Chemical Society (SCF). He is visiting professor at the federal university of Santa Catarina (UFSC, Florianopolis, Brasil), associate Professor at NITech (Nagoya, Japan) and member of the French solid-state chemistry division.

Some young Chinese Scholars are also invited to CICC-10 (see list)
