Frederic Meunier received a joined Ph.D. degree in physical chemistry from the University of Strasbourg, Strasbourg, Alsace, France and Limerick, Irlande, in 1995. He is currently a CNRS Researcher based at IRCE-Lyon Catalysis Center in Villeurbanne. His main interests include the investigation of the mechanisms of heterogeneous catalytic reactions, in particular by using in situ and operando FTIR spectroscopy which are the themes that were initiated with Professor Julian Ross during his Post-doctoral stay in Limerick from 1996 until 1999. He carried out a von Humboldt fellowship in Munich with Professor Johannes Lercher, from 1999 to 2000, where he studied acid-base catalysis and diffusion in zeolites. He was previously Senior Lecturer at Queen’s University Belfast, United Kingdom, from 2000 till 2007, period during which he researched in the CenTACat group led by Professor Robbie Burch on hydrogen production and environmental catalysis. He is a Member of the editorial board of Catalysis Today and Applied Catalysis B environmental. He was awarded the 2009 prize of the Catalysis Division of the French Chemical Society. He has published more than 70 papers in peer reviewed journals and is an author of two worldwide patents.
