Dr. Rémy Guillet-Nicolas

Dr. Rémy Guillet-Nicolas joined Quantachrome in October 2012 and is currently the Research, Applications and Training Manager, involved in application support worldwide. Being a member of the scientific team, Rémy is also actively implicated in various research projects with Quantachrome’s partners and collaborators leading to the publication of several articles in internationally renowned journals. Rémy obtained his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the Université Laval in 2014 where he studied the design and characterization of mesoporous materials for potential bio-medical applications as well as the precise characterization of these (functionalized) nanoporous solids, especially by gas physisorption.
