In 1999, I moved to Nantes at Oniris in Food engineering department and integrate the French National Council laboratory GEPEA.
I devoted the last 30 years on the development of micro encapsulation system from fondamental (chemistry, physico-chemistry) to very applied research (optimization of industrial process up to several tons per weeks).
In 1992, I created the Bioencapsulation Research Group international association and organized more than 60 conferences on micro encapsulation.
I am author of near to 100 scientific articles, 20 book chapters and more than hundred presentations at international conferences.
