Projects and collaborations

I am involved in several projects, these included:

 - EU 'M4CO2' (Jan. 2014-Dec. 2017) is a large-scale collaborative research project within the 7th European Framework Program for Research and Technological Development (FP7/2014, Grant Agreement n° 608490)

 - ANR ‘CHESDENS’ This ANR SEED project (Jan. 2014-Jun. 2017) investigates the possibility to take a QPSR type approach to the choice of the most appropriate adsorbent for various applications involving CO2 capture.

- ANR ‘ANPA’ This ANR ASTRID (Feb. 2014 – Dec. 2016) is aimed at finding an alternative method to prepare aluminium nano-powders for propulsion applications. 

 - ANR Jeune Chercheur ‘NewRap’ In this project, coordinated by Eric Besson of the ICR laboratory (Marseille), looks at the stabilisation of radical inside mesoporous silicas.


I am involved in several collaborations with industrials and academics partners, these included:McCormick, BRGM, HySilabs, ICR laboratory (Marseille)...
