Lionel Roue received his Ph.D. degree in 1995 in the field of electrochemistry from the Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique-Energie, Matériaux et Télécommunications (INRS-EMT, Varennes, Canada) from 1995 to 1998. As a Professor at the INRS-EMT since 1998, he has developed a research program on the study of new electrode materials, particularly nanostructured and/or metastable electrode materials prepared by mecanosynthesis. His research projects deal with fundamental aspects of electrochemistry specific to these materials and their use in various fields of energy (e.g., Si-based negative electrodes for Li-ion batteries, Mg-based negative electrodes for Ni-MH batteries), environment (e.g., electrochemical removal of nitrate and ammonia in aqueous effluents), and industrial electrolysis processes (e.g., inert anodes for Al production, cathodes for chlorate production).
