OTURAN Mehmet Ali

Professeur des universités

Présentation :


Mehmet A. Oturan is a full Professor of Exceptional Class at Université Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée. He was born in Tunceli, Turkey, in 1950. He obtained Chemical Engineer degree in 1973, MS degree in 1975 and his Ph.D. degree in Analytical Electrochemistry in 1979 at the Hacettepe University in Ankara before becoming Associate Professor at the same university. He undertook a postdoctoral stay in 1981 to complete his studies in electrochemistry at the Université Paris VII-Denis Diderot under supervision of Prof. J. M. Savéant in the field of organic electrochemistry. From 1982 to 1989, he worked as contracted lecturer-researcher at the Université Paris VII-Denis Diderot and researcher in pharmaceutical industry. In 1989, he joined the newly-formed Université de Marne-la-Vallée as Associate Professor. There he developed the electro-Fenton process in its "carbon-felt cathode" version. After obtaining his HDR (ability to supervise researchers) degree in 1997, he became full Professor at the Université de Marne-la-Vallée in 2002. At present, he is Headmaster of the Département de Géomatériaux at the IFSA (Institut Francilien des Sciences Appliquées), leader of the Environmental Chemistry research group, head of the master Géo-Environnement and Vice-President of the French group of pesticides. He is also member of National University Council (31st section) since 1998. He was Head of the Laboratoire Géomatériaux et Environnement (2009-2014), Board Member of the Scientific Council of Université Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée (205-2015) and Board member of Doctoral Scholl SIE (Science, Engineering and Environment) of Université Paris-Est (2008-2015). His research activities mainly focus on the generation of radical species in a catalytic way by means of electrochemical, chemical or photochemical techniques and their use in environmental chemistry in the frame of the advanced oxidation processes, including their application to chemical kinetics, degradation mechanisms and electrochemical engineering. He developed electro-Fenton process in this frame. He has been Associate Editor of the Journal of Environment Engineering and Monitoring (2006 – 2010). He serves as Editor Sustainable Environmental Research and as Associate Editor Environmental Chemistry Letters. He is member of Editorial Board of several scientific journals. He has supervised 38 Ph.D. theses, published more than 170 peer-reviewed papers. His publications are cited more than 5800 times with an H factor 45 according to Web of Science (>8300 citations and H factor of 52 following Google Scholar). He published also three books and seven book chapters. He presented more than 250 contributions including 56 invited conferences/seminaries to scientific national and international congresses or foreign universities/scientific institutions.
