Dr. Anne JULBE has a very strong track record in materials chemistry applied to the development of ceramic membranes for gas separation and catalytic reactors.
She studied Chemistry at the University of Montpellier (1980-1985) and was graduated Ing. (MSc.) in the Chair of Materials Science. She obtained her PhD in 1989, for the development of sol-gel derived SiC and SiO2 membranes and materials. In 1989 she received a tenure researcher position at the CNRS, in the group of Prof. Louis Cot. She initiated an activity on ceramic membranes for gas separation and catalytic reactors, namely with nanophase oxides and zeolites, using sol-gel, microwaves- and supercritical CO2-assisted methods. In 2002 she defended her Habilitation thesis on the “Contribution of Material Science to the development of Membrane reactors” and got the position of CNRS-Directeur de Recherche in 2004. She led a team on “Ceramic & hybrid membranes by sol-gel & CVD methods” from 2007 to 2010 and has been in charge of the DM3 department on the “Design of Membrane Materials and Multifunctional systems” in the period 2010-2014.
Dr. Anne JULBE is co-author of over 150 publications, including 17 book chapters and 10 patents in the area of membrane materials. She was (co)promotor of 23 PhDs. Her work has been cited more than 1800 times. Her current interests include the design of original nanostructured multifunctional membranes for specific applications in gas/vapour/liquid separations, catalytic reactors and electrochemical systems.
