Dr. Gregory Chatel received his master’s degree from the University of Savoie (France) in 2009 and his doctoral degree from the University of Grenoble (France) in 2012 (“Ionic liquids and ultrasound assisted epoxidation of olefins: a green and synergic combination”). In 2013, Dr. Chatel joined Prof. Robin D. Rogers’ Group at The University of Alabama (Center for Green Manufacturing) as a postdoctoral research fellow. His research is focused on the application of ionic liquids in Green Chemistry, separation and biomass processing. Dr. Chatel joined the Institut de Chimie des Milieux et Matériaux of the University of Poitiers (“Catalysis and non-conventional media” team) in September 2013 as an Assistant Professor to develop a biomass valorization program based on non-conventional media/techniques (ultrasound).
