Quentin Van Overmeere

Quentin Van Overmeere’s 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.

Before joining PARC, Quentin was a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University and the Université catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain) in Belgium. His research focused on the development of thin film-based oxide electrodes for solide oxide fuel cells and electrolyzers.

Dr. Van Overmeere holds a Ph.D. in Engineering and a Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering, both from UCLouvain. 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.
