Senior Manager - Head Of Operations - Metallic Technologies & Surface Engineering

After obtaining a PhD in Physical Chemistry at the University of Bordeaux 1, in 1988 I joined the French Corporate Research Center of Airbus Group. My first mission as Research Engineer was the design and development of materials for radar applications. In 1996, I was appointed as Deputy of the Head of “Physics and Mathematics” Department. Then in 2000, I became the Leader of the Surface Treatment Team, in charge of the design and development of materials and processes for the protection of aeronautical surfaces. Since 2007 I’m also acting as Head of Operations of the trans-national Technical Capability Centre "Metallic Technologies & Surface Engineering” of Airbus Group Innovations.
