Research interests

  • Development of a sensor for trace metal monitoring - GREEN SENSOR (SYCLOPE ELECTRONIQUE).

  • Development of a sensor for pesticide analysis  - PHYTOCAPTOR (E2S-UPPA)

  • Assessment of freshwater quality based on physico-chemical analyses and biological indicators such as brypohytes - PYCALAB (Agence de l'Eau Adour Garonne).

  • Isotopy of sulfur inorganic compounds in solution: applications to environmental samples.


Doctorant co-supervision
  • Martinez Mathieu (2015-2018) « Development of a method for isotopic ratios determination of sulfur. Applications to environmental samples ».

Post-doc supervision
  • Estelle Ricard (2018-2019) "Development of a method for on site freshwater quality assesment (project PYCALAB)".
  • Wahid Ben Mefteh (2017-2020) "Development of an industrial sensor for trace metal analysis in situ". - Project GREEN SENSOR.

  • Isabelle Mazerie (2017-2018) "Development of a method for in situ pesticide analysis by electrochemistry" - Project PYCALAB.

  • Estelle Ricard (2015-2016) "In situ speciation analysis by means of the hyphenation of a passive sensor to a dynamic sensor" - Project SPECIES (ANR France Portugal).


  • GREEN SENSOR (2017-2020) : SYCLOPE Electronique / FEDER

The objective is to develop an industrial sensor based on screen-printed electrodes developped in laboratory thanks to a collaboration with an industrial, SYCLOPE ELECTRONIQUE, expert in analysis and control of water.


  • PYCALAB (2017-2019) : Agence de l'Eau Adour Garonne / Communauté d'agglomération Pau Béarn Pyrénées

The objective of this project is to develop a method allowing a rapid diagnostic on freshwater quality to be done. The methodological approach is based on physico-chemical analysis (global parameters such as pH, concentrations in major cations and anions, trace metals and pesticides) and a biological indicator, the bryophyte.


  • SPECIES (2012-2016) - ANR France Portugal/ Conseil Départemental 64

The objective of this project was to build an in-situ measurement probe based on different electrochemical methods (SSCP and AGNES) and Donan Membrane Technique (DMT) in order to determine bioavailability of metal trace metal such as Cd, in collaboration with the university of Faro (Portugal).


  • PYRMET (2008-2011) - POCTEFA INTERREG / Communauté d'agglomération Pau Béarn Pyrénées

The objective of this project was to develop an electrochemical method for direct determination of free metal concentration in freshwater in collaboration with the electrochemical team of Lleida (Spain).
