I am particularly engaged in characterisation of new materials in inorganic chemistry. My main projects involve the synthesis of new porous materials for sustainable chemistry (storage, decontaminants, ...). Strong skills in crystallography, especially in powder diffraction.

I am used to participate in popularizing chemistry with children.

I talked about crystallography and made crystal growing and chemical gardens during the IYC 2011.
