Jérôme Rey received his PhD (2019) from Ecole Normale Sup. de Lyon, under the direction of Pascal Raybaud (IFPEN Lyon-Solaize) and the supervision of Céline Chizallet (IFPEN Lyon-Solaize) and Tomáš Bučko (Comenius University in Bratislava, Slovakia), on the mechanisms and kinetics of alkenes isomerization and cracking in chabazite zeolite quantified by constrained ab initio molecular dynamics. He was previously professeur agrégé in CPGE (classes préparatoires aux grandes écoles). Since then, he has worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the Laboratory of Chemistry at ENS de Lyon (2019-2021) about the theoretical study of the catalytic activity of alumina in presence of water in biomass conversion process, under the supervision of Carine Michel and at the Laboratoire de Physique et Chimie Théorique of Lorraine University (2021-2022) on the topic of free energies calculations for reactions in zeolites computed by machine learning perturbation theory, under the supervision of Dario Rocca and Michael Badawi. Currently, he works as a postdoctoral researcher in LCS, CNRS, France, under the supervision of Rémy Guillet-Nicolas. His current research focus on the development of zeolitic materials for separation, stockage and transport of CH4, H2, N2 and CO2 with advanced modeling methods.
Research Highlights: ab initio constrained molecular dynamics, DFT, machine learning, adsorption, catalysis, zeolites.
