network / Prof. Benjamin Rotenberg

The PHENIX Laboratory (Physical chemistry of electrolytes and interfacial nanosystems) is a joint research unit between CNRS and UPMC (Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris).

Prof.. Benjamin Rotenberg  graduated in Chemistry from the Ecole Normale Superieure (Paris, FR), after several research internships at the University of Cambridge (UK). He received his PhD in Physical Chemistry (2007) from UPMC and joined the FOM Institute for Atomic and Molecular Physics (Amsterdam, NL) as a post-doc associate. He was visiting professor at the University of Barcelona (2010&2011) and visiting scholar at the University of California, Berkeley (2010, 2011 and 2013). His research focuses on the multiscale modelling of charged interfaces, in particular in the fields of energy and the environment. He has published 95 peer-reviewed journal articles or book chapters, including in Nature Materials, Nature Communications, Nature Energy, Phys. Rev. Lett. or JACS. He is member of the Editorial Board of Molecular Physics. In 2015, he was awarded the Bronze Medal of CNRS. In 2013, he received the Young Researcher Prize of the Division de Chimie Physique (joint division of the French Chemical and Physical Societies) and the Grand Prix Michel Gouilloud Schlumberger of the French Academy of Science
