was born in Fraire, Belgium in 1954. He obtained his Ph.D. (1979) in Chemistry at the Facultés Universitaires Notre-Dame de la Paix in Namur with Jean-Marie André. After post-doctoral stays at Allied Corporation/MIT (with ray Baughman, Ron Chance/Bob Silbey) and again at Namur, he presented his Thèse d'Agrégation in 1986 at the Catholic University of Louvain. He was appointed Professor of Chemistry and Head of the Laboraory for the Chemistry of Novel Materials at the University of Mons-Hainaut in 1988 and became Full Professor in 1990. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and Vice President of the Belgian Royal Society of Chemistry. He is currently Chairman of the Department of Materials in Mons and a Co-Director of the Interuniversity Center for Researc on Molecular Electronics and Photonics.
