David Schmool, PhD, has over 20 years of technical and teaching experience in areas related to Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies. He is currently Director of the Groupe d’Etude de la Matière Condensée GEMaC at CNRS (UMR 8635) at the Université de Versailles/Saint-Quentin, Université Paris-Saclay in Versailles, France. Prior to that, he was at the University of Perpignan and Laboratoire PROMES – CNRS, Perpignan, France, as well as at several universities in the UK, France, Italy, Spain, and Portugal. He has also been invited for sabbatical leave as a visiting fellow to several institutions, including Simon Fraser University (Canada), the University of Versailles (France), the University of Duisburg-Essen (Germany), and the University of Glasgow (UK). In addition to his research experience, he has lectured on physics since 2000 on a variety of subjects. He has also developed Masters and PhD level courses in nanotechnologies and related subjects, which he has also taught. He has published widely, including over 65 journal papers, 10 book chapters, and a book and has given many conference presentations, including 15 invited talks and over 20 invited seminars.
