Nicolas Fatin‐Rouge studied physical chemistry at the University of Strasbourg, Strasbourg, France, and obtained his Ph.D. degree, in 1998, in the field of self‐assembly of metallic helicates. He pursued his formation as a Postdoctoral Fellow and then as Maître‐assistant at the group of Pr Bunzli (EPFL, 1998 to 2001), where he worked on aqueous complexes of f‐elements as luminescent material and contrast agents for MRI. Then he moved to the group of Pr Buffle (University of Geneva, 2001 to 2003), where he studied the diffusion of solutes and solids in hydrogels, and diffusion of dye‐labeled polymers by fluorescence correlation spectroscopy, before appointment to Associate Professor in 2003 at the University of Franche‐Comté. In 2011, he managed the Waste Management License at UFC. His research concerns the development of various technologies to decontaminate water and soils. Using membrane technologies and interactions in solutions, he is working on sustainable treatments of wastewater. He is also developing foam technologies to mobilize, immobilize, or destroy pollutants in soils. Nicolas Fatin‐Rouge is collaborating with various industrial partners and is involved in European and national research projects for environmental remediation.
