Our team

An experienced team at your service
Clément Duprat
Work-study engineer

Clément is a fifth-year student in Physical Engineering at the Polytech Clermont INP engineering school. Specializing in the study of materials, he carries out physico-chemical measurements and analyses on a daily basis, as well as writing experimental protocols and study reports. He is involved in the laboratory’s R&D projects and contributes his knowledge to the improvement of testing resources.

Florian Rodrigues
R&D Project Manager

Master in Chemistry

After a Master’s degree in Chemistry with a Materials option, Florian had various experiences in R&D positions, Especially at the CEA (French Atomic Energy and Alternative Energy Commission) . Since 2021, he has been in charge of customer R&D projects at Calnesis. He is supporting you on a daily basis in the management and implementation of your projects.

Mickaël Simond
CEO and Sales Director

PhD in Chemical Physics

Mickaël has carried out the majority of his thesis work on problems related to the CO₂ capture using absorbent solutions. In the course of his work, he has implemented various experimental methods, in particular for the measurement of heats of mixture and reaction. He worked in the CO₂ group of the Thermodynamics team of the Chemistry Institute of Clermont-Ferrand. He is one of the two founders of Calnesis and is currently in charge of sales. He is following the R&D projects that you entrust to us on a daily basis.

Jean-Claude Neyt
COO and Lab Manager

PhD in Chemical Physics

Jean-Claude did his thesis work with IFP Energies nouvelles, on the determination of interfacial tensions of mixtures in geological conditions: high temperatures and high pressures. During his university studies, he also carried out research work for MICHELIN, studying the mechanisms and kinetics of elastomer oxidation. He is one of the two founders of Calnesis and is currently in charge of the laboratory’s experimental activities.
