During his laboratory formation, he worked on different projects related to marine biology such as  

antibacterial and antifongical effects of substances extracted from marine sponges,  the Bonamia ostrea parasite of the Ostrea edulis oyster, the developpment of a detection test of the Nodavirus in the Lates calcarifer fish, the caracterization of proteinaceous exotoxins of shrimp-pathogenic isolates of Vibrio penaeicida and Vibrio nigripulchritudo. In March 2007, he was affected at the Criobe station in Moorea, to manage the station’s laboratories.
