Area(s) of Research

New polymerization chemistries and polymer architectures. Applications to Dispersed Media


  • Chemical Engineer, Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Mulhouse, France (1993)

  • Ph.D., Polymer Chemistry, Lyon I Claude Bernard University, France (2000).

  • Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches, Claude Bernard University, France (2010)

Research Interests

The research activities we are trying to develop focus essentially on the use of different polymerization chemistries or polymerization processes to produce new materials, to improve polymer properties, and to discover and create ones. For example, we are trying to find strategies to design new polymers by the switch from catalytic olefin polymerization to controlled radical polymerization. Tailor-made block copolymers are also produced by controlled radical polymerization (RAFT) and assess for specific applications in dispersed media. In another field, the modification of latex surfaces is also envisioned by the use of controlled polymerization techniques.

Current Projects

  • Functionalization of polyolefins

  • Controlled Radical Polymerization of Ethylene

  • Polymerization Induced Self-Assembly (PISA) in emulsion
