He has been working for ~30 years on the crystal solid electrolytes and positive electrode materials for Li-ion and Na-ion batteries, in particular on operando X-ray or neutron diffraction of phosphate-containing positive electrodes. After graduating in Paris-XI University in France in 1991 for his PhD, he joined the French Navy for one year and then spent 4 Post-Doctoral years abroad: 2 in Japan at the Osaka National Research Institute (AIST, 1993 & 1994) and 2 at the University of Texas at Austin (1995 & 1996). He was then appointed as Associate Professor in Paris-XI University (Orsay) in 1996 and as a full Professor in LRCS of UPJV Amiens from 2000. He is the co-author of ~ 170 publications and 15 international patents in this field. He is a Senior Member of the Institut Universitaire de France (IUF) and President of the Section 33 (Materials Science) of the French National Council of Universities (CNU). He is presently co-Director of the ALISTORE European Research Institute and head of the MESC+ “Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion” program, an ERASMUS MUNDUS European Joint Master Degree. Since 2020, he is the Coordinator of the European Marie Curie PhD-COFUND project DESTINY which trains 50 PhD students in Europe on advanced batteries
