Johan Jacquemin has been holding the position of a Lecturer in chemical engineering within the School of Chemistry and chemical engineering at the Queen’s University of Belfast, Belfast, UK, since October 2011. He passed his Ph.D. degree with honors, investigating thermodynamics of selected ionic liquids in July 2006 at the Blaise Pascal University, Clermont-Ferrand, France. He stayed for two years as Postdoctoral Research Associate QUB in order to improve knowledge of ionic liquids and more precisely their chemical engineering properties and applications. From September 2008 to September 2011, Jacquemin joined the François Rabelais University, Tours, France, as an Assistant Professor and was involved in researching physical properties of novel materials (ionic liquids, electrolytes, and solar cells materials) for use in battery and supercapacitor applications. His research interests are mainly in physical and applied chemistry of ionic liquids and their mixtures with other fluids and in particular on the relationship between chemical structure and physical properties. The objectives of his works focus on the development of the in-house properties databanks, the design of novel and original experimental apparatus, and physical models that is able to predict measured properties with view to understanding the physic chemical properties of ionic liquids and developing viable chemical engineering processes.
