He has been involved in the development of hybrid organic-inorganic based silica materials by using inorganic polymerization (sol-gel process). The objective of this large research field consists in finding the chemical routes allowing the organization of matter in terms of properties.
Current research concern the hybrid materials for green chemistry, energy and health.
