Current on-going projects


1/ Bioweathering of miscellaneous materials (sulfide minerals, silicates, concrete 1 2, stained glass 1 2, metallurgical slags 1 2, coal ash from coal-fired power plant,...) and resource recovery

I mainly contribute to the study of metal leaching in presence of biofilms (analysis of water chemistry and modelling) and studying mineral secondary phases (XAS, SEM-EDX, XRD)


1-1 SDCC/AIT - France network  programme "SUSTAINABILITY ISSUES DUE TO COAL ASH FROM COAL FIRED POWER PLANTS" (August 2010- August 2016)



1-2 FUI DURANET project : Durable Sewer Network : A better understanding of concrete corrosion of sewer networks and use of durable concrete materials (September 2014-August 2017)

1-3 Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate : Environmental Technologies for Contaminated Solids, Soils and Sediments (ETeCoS3) EMJD programme ETeCoS3 programme (2010 - 2017)


1-4 European network for innovative recovery strategies of rare earth and other critical metals from electric and electronic waste (ReCreew)  see website


2/ Determination of the interaction between heavy metals / metalloids and biofilm in natural and engineered ecosystems (i.e. Bioreactors)

I mainly contribute to the study of metal speciation (XAS, SEM-EDX, XRD, Geochemical modelling)

2-1 Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate
ETeCoS3 programme (November 2010 - October 2017)




2-2 COST Action ES1302 European Network on Ecological Functions of Trace Metals in Anaerobic Biotechnologies (January 2014-December 2017)

2-3 Advanced Biological Waste-to-Energy Technologies (ABWET) European Joint Doctorate (EJD) programme (January 2015-December 2018)

3/ Remediation of water, soil and sediment contaminated by mixed pollutants (Heavy metals and organic pollutants)


I mainly contribute to the development of biological treatment processes (Biodegradability test, bioreactor operations)


3-1 Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate

ETeCoS3 programme (November 2010 - October 2017)



3-2 Advanced Biological Waste-to-Energy Technologies (ABWET) European Joint Doctorate (EJD) programme (January 2015-December 2018)

3-3 COST Action ES1403 New and emerging challenges and opportunities in wastewater reuse (NEREUS) (January 2015-December 2018)
