Fields : Irreducible couplings between heat transfer, mass transfer and fluid mechanics in complex and evolving bio-systems such as cell cultures in bioreactor.
Investigation : bio-catalytic reaction, characterization of complex products (fermentation broth, transfer, solid-liquid suspension, rheological behaviour), dedicated in-situ and ex-situ physical measurements (instrumentation and bioprocess design), membrane process (alternative technology, loss reduction, water management), heat treatment (conventional and alternative technologies, Indirect and direct Joule effect heater
Scientific production: 5 patents, 43 publications, 123 communications, 9 chapters, 25 invited conferences.
