Christophe was born in 1968 and graduated in 1992 from the Engineering School of Chemical Engineering (ENSIC) in Nancy (France). He received his Ph.D. in 1996 from the University Paul Sabatier in Toulouse (France) with a work on “Hollow-fibre dead-end ultrafiltration: module design and process simulation in water treatment”.
Then, he spent 18 months as a postdoctoral researcher at Rice University (Houston, TX) making CFD simulations on rotating and stationary membrane disk filters as well as hydrodynamics of permeable aggregates in differential sedimendation.
Since 1998, he has been a faculty member of the University Louis Pasteur which became the University of Strasbourg in 2009 (France) teaching chemical engineering at the European Engineering School of Chemistry, Polymer and Material Sciences (ECPM). His researches concern the development of new microfluidic-assisted polymer processes for the synthesis of architecture-controlled polymers and functional microstructured polymer particles. In 2010 he has been appointed Full Professor at the University of Strasbourg and took the head of the Group for the Intensification and Integration of Polymer Processes (G2IP) within the Institute of Chemistry and Processes for Energy, Environment and Health (ICPEES).
