Sara Cavaliere


Sara Cavaliere is Professor of Chemistry at the University of Montpellier, and performs her research activity at Charles Gerhardt Institute for Molecular Chemistry and Materials. After a Bachelor and Master degree at the University of Milan (Italy), she received her PhD in Chemistry and Materials Science in 2006 in Versailles (France). She worked as postdoctoral fellow at University of Freiburg (Germany) and as teaching and research assistant at University of Lyon (France). In 2017 Prof. Cavaliere was awarded the CNRS bronze medal and appointed junior member of the Institut Universitaire de France.

Her work aims at developing advanced nanostructured materials to enhance performance and durability of electrochemical energy conversion and storage devices, including fuel cells and electrolysers. Current research directions include the development of new electrolyte and electrode materials for proton and anion exchange membrane fuel cells and water electrolysers. In particular, the group is dealing with design and preparation of nanostructured and nanofibrous materials by electrospinning, and new membrane-electrode assembly architectures. Techniques for metal deposition and surface functionalisation are also implemented to prepare materials with improved properties relevant to the targeted applications.
