I am a CNRS Senior Researcher (directeur de recherche) at Institut de Recherche de Chimie Paris, a joint CNRS / Chimie ParisTech research institute, in the Organometallic Chemistry and Polymerization Catalysis team. My research group there is centered mainly on molecular simulation at various scales, covering first principles methods (quantum chemistry calculations, ab initio molecular dynamics), classical methods (force field-based molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo), and mesoscopic modeling.
My interests lie in the physical and chemical properties of porous materials, and in particular in the adsorption of fluids and the behavior of nano-confined phases.
