Quentin Van Overmeere

Quentin Van Overmeere is a researcher at UCLouvain. He holds a Ph.D. in Engineering and a Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering, both from UCLouvain. At UCLouvain, Quentin currently focuses on advancing the porous silicon technology up to commercial-readiness. The goal is to provide the next generation of substrates for RF micro-electronics, which can then be used as a drop-in replacement of silicon substrates.

From 2015 to 2018, Quentin has been a member of the research staff at Xerox PARC where he led several commercial and government-funded projects in the materials and energy space. From 2011 to 2015, he was a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University and UCLouvain.

His prior research focuses on processes to synthesize nanostructured materials at large scales, with a focus on providing materials-based solutions to energy problems. Quentin’s fields of expertise include nanomaterials, physical chemistry and electrochemistry spanning from the design of roll-to-roll electrochemical processes, fabrication of novel electrochemical devices to the synthesis of high-performance electrodes.

He has authored 20+ publications and has received several awards for his research work, including the Oronzio and Niccolò de Nora Foundation Young author prize from the International Society of Electrochemistry, the Morris Cohen Graduate Student Award from the Corrosion Division of the Electrochemical Society and the Antonella Karlson Prize from the FNRS-Fund for Scientific Research.
