Professor at Université de Montpellier since September 2009, he is an expert in the spectroscopic characterization of functional inorganic materials and in the development of specific tools for the in situ and operando analysis of their working mechanisms. His research activities are currently focused in the fields of advanced Li-ion and post-lithium battery systems.
