Dr. Cyril Aymonier

CNRS Researcher and director of ICMCB Bordeaux, member of group 'Supercritical Fluids'


Cyril Aymonier is CNRS senior researcher at the Institut de Chimie de la Matière Condensée in Bordeaux (ICMCB-CNRS, France). He graduated (PhD) in 2000 from the University of Bordeaux on the study of Supercritical Water Oxidation (SCWO) and spent two years as a Post-Doc at the University of Freiburg (Germany).
