From 2007 to 2015 he was the Head of the Biomaterials and Interfaces Research Unit (URB2I) at the Paris Descartes University Dental School. In 2015, he developed a private research center in dental biomaterials (MaJEB) in Liège (Belgium) and a collaboration with the dental biomaterials research unit of the University of Liège. His research interests are dental ceramics and composites. He is the author of several international publications about dental materials and acts as a reviewer for international journals in the same field.
