In a few words

Nicolas Ferrando graduated from Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Ingénieurs en Génie Chimique (Toulouse) with a Chemical Engineering degree, followed by a PhD in Chemistry from Université Paris XI. He joined IFPEN in 2004 as research engineer in the Thermodynamic and Molecular Simulation Department, in charge of physical-chemistry modeling of processes. Since 2017, he is project manager in the reservoir modeling program. He also supervised two PhD students and participates to educational activities at IFP-School. He has published some thirty publications in peer reviewed journals, two patents, and is co-leader of a working group in Société Française de Génie des Procédés.
