About me

European Commission’s Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow, Amphos 21 Consulting S.L., Spain
Affiliate, Center for International Security and Cooperation (CISAC), Stanford University, USA
François Diaz-Maurin

I am a scientist and engineer trained in nuclear materials, geochemistry of radionuclides and nuclear security (Stanford University, 2017–2019), environmental science and technology (Ph.D., Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, 2013, summa cum laude), and civil engineering (B.Sc./M.Sc., University of Rennes 1, 2004/2007, both with distinction). Prior to joining academia in February 2011, I worked 4 years as a structural and mechanical engineer on various major R&D projects in the nuclear industry in Paris, France (2007-2008) and in Boston, United States (2009-2010). I am currently a European Commission's Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow at Amphos 21 Consulting S.L., Barcelona, Spain. From 2017 to 2019, I was a MacArthur Foundation Nuclear Security Visiting Scholar at the Center for International Security and Cooperation (CISAC), Stanford University, USA.
My current research focuses on (1) the integrated performance assessment of nuclear waste geological disposal systems, (2) the back-end integration of the nuclear fuel cycle, and (3) the sustainability assessment of nuclear fuel cycles. I am the author or co-author of over 35 research papers mainly on multi-scale integrated analysis applied to nuclear energy systems, natural resources management and sustainability assessment.
I am a member of the Materials Research Society (MRS), the American Nuclear Society (ANS), the European Association of Geochemistry (EAG), the European Geosciences Union (EGU), and the European Association for the Study of Science and Technology (EASST).
I read, write and speak fluently four languages (French, English, Spanish, and Catalan).
