Parabolic flight engineer

Trained as a general chemical engineer with an emphasis in safety, Yannick joined Novespace in 2008. His area of expertise covers the design and operation of experiments about chemistry and biology, both on board the A310 Zero G and in the ground laboratories.

“Not two experiments are similar. Every time, you have to adapt to the specificities of the research, strike a balancing act between getting the best possible scientific results, not compromising on safety and keeping in mind the requirements of the other experiments on board. No such thing as routine, and you have to love a job that always keeps you on your toes. ”

As a rugby player and sci-fi enthusiast, he enjoys tackling new challenges and helping researchers push the final frontiers of science ever forwards.
