of the Laboratoire de Chimie des Polymères Organiques.
Education and experience
After receiving his engineering degree from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de
Chimie et de Physique de Bordeaux in 1987, he obtained his PhD from LCPO,
University of Bordeaux 1, in 1990 for studies in the field of ring-opening
metathesis polymerization under the supervision of Profs Alain Soum and Michel
After a post-doctoral stay with Prof. W. J. Feast at the University of Durham,
U.K. for investigations on polyacetylene via the so-called ‘Durham route’, he
became an Assistant Professor of Polymer Chemistry at the University of
Bordeaux 1 and, since 1999, he has been appointed Professor of Polymer
Chemistry at the same University.
In 2004, he was awarded the position of Junior Member of the ‘Institut
Universitaire de France’.
He is the author of 90 publications, 11 patents
and 15 invited conferences.
