Marc Cretin was born in France, in 1969. He received his Ph.D. degree in Electrochemistry from the National Polytechnic Institute of Grenoble in 1996 and joined the Analytical Department of the Geneva University to develop electrochemical sensors for biomedical and environmental analysis. In 1998 he had a position of assistant professor at the Ecole Nationale de Chimie de Montpellier (ENSCM) to teach Analytical Chemistry and Electrochemistry and to work on membranes materials for detection, separation and reaction. He’s full professor since 2012 at the University of Montpellier and works mainly in the field of materials for energy and environment. He focuses his research mainly on electroactive materials for fuel cells, biofuel cells, EAOP (electrochemical advanced oxidation processes) and ceramic membranes for water treatment. He’s currently Director of the department “Physico-Chemistry, Interface and Polymer” at the European Membrane Institute of Montpellier (IEM) and co-director of the International French-Russia Laboratory MEIPA “Ion Exchange Membranes and Associated Processes”. Up to March 2015, he has co-authored 53 peer reviewed papers.
