Fabien Grasset was born in Fumel, France, in 1970. In 1998, he received his Ph.D. degree in solid state chemistry from the University of Science and Technology of Bordeaux, France, and the Bordeaux Institute of Condensed Matter Chemistry (ICMCB). After a postdoctoral stay at ICMCB on magnetic nanoparticles for nanobiotechnology (group of Professor E. Duguet), he undertook a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) in Japan from 1999 to 2001 in collaboration with Professor H. Haneda on magnetic core-shell SiO2 nanoparticles. He joined first the University of Rennes 1 (UR1), France, in 2001, and he currently works as a Full Associate Professor at the UR1 since 2003. He joined the Solid State Chemistry and Materials Group at USCR in January 2006 in order to develop nanomaterials and colloidal chemistry. His area of research interest focuses on the synthesis of new functional colloidal nanostructure (M-ZnO, M-SiO2, and g-Fe2O3) and thin films. Recently, he extended his knowledge on nanoparticles synthesis on nanomaterials based on metal atoms clusters. In May 2008, he defended his Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches. In 2007, he was invited as a Short-Term Fellow of the International Center for Young Scientist at the National Institute for Materials Science under ICYS/NIMS program for 3 months. From 2007 to 2009, he was one of the PI of a MERLION PHC between the National University of Singapore (Professor Y. Zhang) and the University of Rennes 1. From 2008 to 2012, he was elected at the National Committee of CNRS (section 15).
