An experienced team at your service
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.

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.

Loriane Gorge
Apprentice Laboratory Technician

Loriane is an apprentice in a professional degree programme in Analytical Chemistry, Control, Quality and Environment at the University of Clermont Auvergne. She carries out daily measurements and physico-chemical analyses, but also writes experimental protocols and study reports.

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.
