Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology


I received my Ph.D. in organic chemistry from Joseph Fourier University (Grenoble, France) prepared jointly with CERMAV (Centre de Recherche sur les Macromolecules Végétales). I recently joined the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) as Senior Scientist. Before joining LIST, I worked at 'Service des Matériaux Polymers et Composites' at University of Mons (Belgium). Before joining UMONS, I spent few years as Research Assistant Professor at North Carolina State University (NCSU, Raleigh, USA) and as Research and Teaching Assistant at the French Engineering School of Paper, Printing and Biomaterials (PAGORA, Grenoble Institute of Technology, France). I work across many branches of the sustainable production of materials from renewable resources. My research interests include the design of new bio-derived polymers, development of high performance nanocomposites from lignocellulosic materials including natural nano-sized fillers (with a worldwide recognized expertise on nanocellulose), biomass conversion technologies, and the application of novel analytical tools to biomass. I published over 100 research articles or invited reviews in high standard peer review journals, (co)edited and/or (co)authored several books and book chapters. I am involved in several organizations such ACS, TAPPI (Standard Nomenclature of Nanocellulose) and also serve as active reviewer or member of the editorial broad of several scientific journals.
