Philippe Poulin, Research Director at the Centre de Recherche Paul Pascal and member of the Carbon Nanotubes and Graphene team, has been awarded the 2020 CNRS Silver Medal.

Upon joining the CNRS in 1997, he began his research on liquid crystal emulsions, notably discovering new interactions and colloidal structures.

In the 2000s, he became interested in carbon nanotubes and proposed the first process for making fibers with these materials. His research was then extended to polymers and composite materials. In 2007, he discovered a phenomenon which is today called "temperature memory" in shape memory polymers. He is currently working on new composites from bio-based materials and on energy recovery systems. He is the author or co-author of more than 150 publications and has presented more than 90 invited lectures. He is a laureate of the CNRS Bronze Medal, the Physical Chemistry Award from the French Chemical Society, and the "La Recherche" Journal Award.
