He received in 1996 a PhD, European Label, from the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis (France) and Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden) where he spent 3 years (1992-1995). After a one-year position as associate researcher at the university of Nice Sophia Antipolis (1996), he got an assistant professor position at the University of Lyon (1997) where he was appointed full professor in 2005. His research achievements are in the fields of molecular precursors of materials, chemistry of inorganic and hybrid materials, colloidal chemistry, powders, thin films and monoliths, High resolution 3D printing, synthesis and surface modification of nanomaterials, properties of materials, plasmonics. He is interested in applications related to photonics, environment or medicine. In particular, he designed original solid-state non-linear optical filters, explored the chemistry and properties of plasmonic nanomaterials, photocatalytic materials, or investigated synthesis strategies towards colloids and particles assemblies. He is currently the Director of the Chemistry Laboratory of the Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS) of Lyon, France.
