Cédric Pattyn graduated in 2015 from the University of Orléans with an optoelectronics engineering diploma along with a materials science master degree. The expertise he developed was focused on plasma science and engineering. Following graduation, he did his PhD in the GREMI laboratory (University of Orléans / CNRS) on the topic of biosensor development and extensively studied the synthesis and characterization of carbon nanotubes, carbon nanowalls, graphene and ultra-thin polymer coatings by PECVD. After two years postdoc in Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) on the topic of nitrogen fixation by green chemistry and one year postdoc in Polytechique Montréal (R&D, Startup Company) focused on surface engineering by plasma for bio-applications, he joined Didar lab in 2022 as postdoctoral fellow. In his spare time, he enjoys artistic activities such as music, drawing, painting and cooking but also sport (football, ski, hiking…) and he is very enthusiast about travelling and discovering other cultures.
