He obtained a PhD in Oenology from the University of Bordeaux in 1996 and then performed 2 post-doctoral fellowships, the first one at Stellenbosch University (South Africa) and the second at the Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute (Brock University, Canada). From 1999 to 2011, he worked as a Research Project Manager at ADRIA Normandie, an Agri-Industry Technical Institute. His research fields concerned all aspects of food quality and safety, especially in fermented products (cheese, cider, olives).

His major research areas concern food-associated fungi (especially in cheese), their secondary metabolism through the study of extrolite biosynthetic gene clusters and extrolite toxicological evaluation, as well as control of spoilage fungi through biopreservation.
