Welcome! I am a professor of Physical Chemistry at the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon. I co-lead the Ionic Liquids Group with Margarida Costa Gomes (CNRS dir res), within the Theoretical Chemistry and Molecular Thermodynamics research axis at the Chemistry Laboratory .

We study the physical chemistry of ionic liquids and eutectic solvents, to develop new solvents for reactions or separations, and also electrolytes or lubricants, with applications in sustainable chemical processes and devices. Our work combines molecular dynamics simulations with experimental thermodynamics. More details about our research, the people in the group and software tools can be found in the Ionic Liquids Group pages.

I’ve authored 160 publications that were cited over 11 000 times in the literature (h-index 53), am an honorary member (senior) of the Institut Universitaire de France and seat at the Conseil National des Universités (Physical Chemistry).
