Vivien Gatard graduated from Grenoble Institute of Technology’s Phelma engineering school in 2018. He recently won the French Chemistry Society’s “Master’s in Electrochemistry Internship” award for the Master’s thesis he completed during his internship at LEPMI (a lab specializing in the electrochemistry and physiochemistry of materials and interfaces). While Vivien was enrolled in the Physics-Nanosciences (PNS) program, he decided to devote his third-year internship to green hydrogen production via water electrolysis under an intense alternating magnetic field.
His passion for the topic led him to pursue his research at LEPMI, where he is currently working toward his PhD. The purpose of the novel electrolysis method is to sustainably produce pure hydrogen in large quantities at a cost that can compete with polluting hydrogen-production techniques using fossil-based energy.
