Sébastien deals with portfolios involving chemistry (organic, medicinal, materials, fuel, energy, etc.), surface physicochemistry (treatment, functionalization, coatings, epitaxy, thin layer deposits, etc.), physics (optics, nanotechnology, etc.), natural resources and the environment, agronomy, pharmacology, and health.

Prior to joining the world of IP, Sébastien spent his academic (doctorate and post-doctorate) years working in various domains including: analytical chemistry and biochemical analyses, protein coupling, nanoporous membranes, electrochemical energy storage, chemical separation processes, the functionalization of nanoparticles, magnetic particles, biochip realization, the optical properties of nanodiamonds, a catalytic etching process, ion electrode development, bio-fuel cells, etc.

His proficiencies include drafting of patent applications, monitoring of patent procedures in both France and abroad, technology watches, competitive intelligence, and scientific database and patent searches.
