His two internships during his academic career, along with his first post-study work experience as a scientific advisor and wine grower allowed him to consolidate his scientific and professional rigour. A member of the Ordre des Chimistes du Québec (OCQ) as a Training Chemist, he is interested in the valorization of several residual materials as part of the circular economy. Through his expertise, he demonstrates a strong ability to analyze, communicate and popularize science.
