My biography

I am a graduate of HEC Paris School of Management and dedicated  my professional carrier to the Property and Construction sector.

I first entered the French Housing Ministry to produce construction economics studies and to participate in the national housing policy. Then I joined the social housing company Logement Français, a subsidiary of the French insurance group AXA. I was during several years in charge of the management of a 28 000 dwellings portfolio in the parisian region.

After I joined the R&D sector, by becoming the Director of the Economics and Human Sciences Department of the Scientific and Technical Building research Centre (CSTB), a 900 employees public centre. I worked on the Property and Construction Sector, coordinating an International Building Council (CIB) report. I published two books on the Construction Sector and on Public Private Partnership, the second one in partnership with Frédéric Bougrain and Marc Colombard-Prout.

Then I monitored, for the French government, a one million € international benchmark on energy and construction, and became an energy efficient buildings international expert. Since March 2009, I am a consultant, specialized in energy and environment efficient buildings, and professor at Ecole des Ponts ParisTech, director of « Sustainable Real Estate and Building » (Energy and digital transitions) Executive Part Time Master. It is the first master dedicated to sustainable real estate to be accredited in Europe by RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors).

I was also the CIB « Energy and the Built Environment » Task Group n°66 coordinator from 2009 to 2012 and published in 2013 the Task Group final report: « The Implementation of Energy Efficiency Buildings Policies : An International Comparison »

I am a member of the French National Plan for Sustainable Buildings (former Plan Bâtiment Grenelle, now Plan Bâtiment Durable) and a member of Executive Committee of the French National Platform for Research on Energy in the Buildings (PREBAT2).

Since 2014, I am Fellow of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (FRICS).
