Gilles Taillades

University of Montpeller, France

Gilles Taillades is presently Professor in Chemistry of Materials at the University of Montpellier, France.
He has received a Ph.D. in Material Science and Chemistry from the University of Montpellier, France in 1997. His research interests lie in the fields of proton transport, proton conducting inorganic solids with particular application in proton conducting fuel cells. Particular focus in recent years has been the development of new electrolyte and advanced electrodes for proton conducting ceramic fuel cells, he has ongoing research in the development of alternative deposition methods and in the characterizations of complete cells.
Other current activities include the development of catalyst materials for hydrogen generation from liquid fuels and electrode materials high temperature proton exchange membrane fuel cells. He has published about 50 papers and communicated in 25 international conferences in the field of novel materials for energy storage and conversion, of materials nanostructuring and of fundamental understanding of electrochemical processes.
