We are interested in the search and investigation of oxides, sulfides, selenides, oxysulfides or oxyselenides, and hybrid materials. Some intermetallics are also investigated, mostly for thermoelectrics. The interplay between spin, charge and lattice in these materials can lead to interesting electronic or magnetic properties with potential applications in the field of energy (thermoelectricity, fuel cells, batteries, anionic or cationic conduction…) or magnetism (multiferroicity). The properties can moreover be strongly modified by shifting from ionic bonding in oxides to a much more covalent behaviour in sulfides and selenides.
The aim of our group is to synthesize new materials and investigate their different properties (magnetism, electronic and thermal transport properties, dielectric constant, polarization) to better understand the relationships between the crystallographic structure and these properties. Theoretical approaches including microscopic calculations of transport quantities, intertwined ground states, and dynamics are developed and applied to models relevant to these materials.

After getting a degree of Physicien (1984) and a PhD in Physics from the University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland (1989), in the field of liquid and amorphous metals I moved to the University of Karlsruhe, Germany, where I started to work in the field of strongly correlated electrons. In 1994, I moved to Shimane University, Japan, where I accepted an Associate Professor position. I pursued research activities in the fields of strongly correlated electrons and bosons, and on the transport properties of amorphous metals. In 1996 I returned to the University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland, where I stayed until 2000. I then accepted a Professor position at the Institut des Sciences de la Matière et du Rayonnement, Caen, France, where I am pursuing research activities in the field of strongly correlated electrons, in close connection with experiment.
