Philippe Hapiot has obtained his Ph.D. degree from the University of Paris 7 in 1988 in Electrochemistry under the supervision of Prof. J.-M. Savéant. In 2000, he joined the University of Rennes 1 where he has a current position as “Directeur de Recherche” in the Centre National of Scientific Research (CNRS). His research interests concern the mechanisms and reactivity in molecular and interfacial electrochemistry taking advantage of fast or localized electrochemical techniques, Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy and Theory of electrochemical processes. His current researches focus on the electrochemical reactivity in ionic liquids, surface functionalization on metallic and semiconductor electrodes considering special effects due to environment.
