Gabriel Loget is a CNRS researcher. He received his PhD in Physical Chemistry from the University of Bordeaux (Prof. A. Kuhn - 2012). In 2012, he received the silver medal of the European Young Chemist Award. After that, he performed a postdoctoral stay at the University of California, Irvine in the group of Prof. Robert M. Corn. In 2014, he was awarded an Alexander-von-Humboldt postdoctoral fellowship for doing his research at the Friedrich-Alexander Universität of Erlangen-Nürnberg in the group of Prof. Patrik Schmuki. In 2015, he joined the Institut des Sciences Chimiques de Rennes as a CNRS researcher and he received his Habilitation in 2020.

He is the co-author of >60 articles, 2 book chapters, and 3 patents.
