  • Biographie

    After a PhD in Chemical Engineering, I have firstly studied the oxidation of ceramic composite materials in University of Limoges (France) from 1995 to 1997. Since 1998, I have been working in the field of Microsystems, Instrumentation and solid state Chemical Sensors for a wide range of applications, with a focus on automotive exhaust sensors. I manage this research department which has also a more general research activity on solid-gas reactivity since 2009. Supervisor of 18 PhDs, author of more than 50 publications, 5 patents, reviewers for many papers in the field of chemical gas sensors, I have joined the steering committee of EUROSENSORS which supervises each year Eurosensors conference at European level (500 attendees).
