Dr. Marion Carrier is a Marie Curie Research Fellow at the European Biomass Research Institute of Aston University, Birmingham (UK). She obtained degrees in Chemical engineering from CPE Lyon (MEng in 2004), in Analytical Science (MSc 2004) and in Chemistry (PhD 2007) from Claude Bernard University in Lyon (France).

Trained as an interdisciplinary researcher, she has been applying her current skills and knowledge in the field of pyrolysis for the last 8 years at leading research organisations in France, South Africa, Chile and England. Her research contributed to a wide range of research fields such as chemical mechanistic, pyrolysis chemical analysis, bioprocessing, thermochemical processing and soil sciences. She is author or co-author of 35 peer-reviewed publications and 3 chapter books. Since October 2015, she joined Prof. Bridgwater’s team to pursue her research on molecular mapping of fast pyrolysis using fractionation and isotopic characterisation techniques along with molecular dynamics calculations.
