Dr. Buannic completed her undergraduate studies with a "Diplôme dingénieur" (French equivalent of a MSE) in chemistry at ESCOM, France. She then received her Ph.D. in August 2011 from the State University of New York, Stony Brook, under the supervision of Professor Clare P. Grey. As a research assistant, she explored the structural arrangements of protonic conductors BaZrO3 and BaSnO3 used as electrolyte materials in Solid Oxide Fuel Cells. She performed multi-nuclear solid state NMR to identify the location of the oxygen vacancies and the arrangement of the substituting elements (Y3+/Sc3+ versus Zr4+/Sn4+). She also collaborated with Dr. Y. Yamazaki and Professor S. Haile (Caltech) to investigate the proton trapping phenomenon occurring in proton conducting perovskite materials.

Upon graduation, Dr. Buannic joined the Laboratory for Battery Materials at the Center for Atomic and Alternative Energies (CEA) in France as a postdoctoral researcher. She focused on the synthesis of novel oxides for anode materials in Li-ion Batteries in view of replacing Li4Ti5O12. She patented the synthesis and composition of a high capacity, fast charging nanosize oxide, TiNb2O7, and coordinated the development of an industrial project with Renault. The project aimed at comparing the gas generation of the newly developed material to the one of Li4Ti5O12 in pouch cells containing NMC and Spinel 5V. She also collaborated with A. Buzlukov (Russian Academy of Sciences) and M. Bardet (INAC, CEA) on the solid state NMR study of a Li-rich cathode material.

Dr. Buannic joined the CIC in July 2014 where she is now working on Li-ion conductors for solid electrolyte applications in batteries.
