The research team of the Group of Analysis and Processes (GA&P) at the University of Angers (France) is part of the Chemistry Department at the Faculty of Science and Technology, and is led by Prof. Maxime Pontie.

The team comprises two researchers: Mehri Shabani, an assistant professor at CERADE, ESAIP St. Barthelemy d’Anjou, and Prof. Maxime Pontie, along with two postdoctoral researchers, Serge Mbokou and Adil Ait Yazza, who are dedicated to the iMERMAID project focusing on the development of electrochemical sensors for organic micropollutants. Additionally, the team includes three doctoral students: Maryam NAZEFARI, co-supervised by Professor Habib Younesi at Tarbiat Modares University, Iran; Jean-Philippe SILGA, co-supervised by Professor Issa Tapsoba at the University of Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso; and Fabio SEIBEL, co-supervised at the University of Passo Fundo, Brazil.

The research conducted within the GA&P group aims to address aquatic pollution through innovative processes and bioprocesses such as nanofiltration, photoreactors, and microbial fuel cells. A significant focus since June 2023 has been the development of electrochemical sensors for organic micropollutants under the iMERMAID program, which stands for Innovative Solution for Mediterranean Ecosystem Remediation via Monitoring and Decontamination from Chemical Pollution. Additionally, the team works on analyzing the life cycle of membranes, a project managed by Mehri SHABANI, who leads the PULSAR project supported by Pays de la Loire (PDL).
