After completing a BSc (Brighton) in Chemistry and Physics, a PhD (Chemistry) from the University of York and a postdoctoral position in the Physics department in York, Hervé went working for Omicron Nanotechnology in the UK and Germany before joining Sasol in 2009 to lead the new surface science group for the characterisation of commercial, developmental and new heterogeneous catalysts, as well as materials used in advanced energy conversion and storage devices. Hervé joined in 2017 the Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science (LRCFS) where he is using his expertise in understanding how materials interacts with one another, and employing his knowledge on the development and use of functionalised materials and nanotechnology for application in forensic science.
