Sébastien Gauthier studied at the University of Paris. In 1986, he obtained his Ph.D. from Paris Diderot University in the Solid State Physics group, working on inelastic electron tunneling spectroscopy in solid tunneling junctions. He is now Directeur de Recherche at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) in the nanoscience CEMES group in Toulouse, France. His research focuses on the investigation of single molecules adsorbed on metal and insulators by scanning tunneling microscopy and atomic force microscopy in ultrahigh vacuum.
