Benoit Teychené graduated from Toulouse University in 2005 (M.S. of Environmental Process Engineering) and received his PhD from the National Institute of Applied Science of Toulouse (2008), where under the direction of Corinne Cabassud and Christelle Guigui he studied the fouling phenomena in membrane bioreactor used for municipal wastewater treatment. During his postdoctoral research at Laboratoire d’Ingénierie des Systèmes Biologiques et des Procédés (LISBP, INSA Toulouse, France) he developed a new in-situ method for the measurement of electrostatic charge of membrane fouling layer. In 2009, Benoit became Associate Professor at the the LCME and then IC2MP at Poitiers University where he develops new models and methodologies to investigate membrane fouling in water treatment application. Specific research areas include hybrid water treatment processes and modeling, engineering of nanoparticles in separation processes. In 2012, he was invited during 6 months at the John Hopkins University (Baltimore, USA) in order to develop a new hybrid ultrafiltration hollow fiber membrane including carbon nanotubes mat. He also spent 1 month at the Wuhan University of Science and technology (WUST, Wuhan China) in order to fractionate and characterize organic matters from the Yangtze river.
He has published 18 articles in international journal, 1 patent and has presented his works in 20 national and international conferences. He has supervised or co-supervised 13 M.S. students, 3
Ph.D. in the field of water and wastewater treatment and environmental chemical engineering.
