Who are we ?

A passionate team of chemistry and microfluidics

Emulseo develops and supplies surfactant formulations for droplet-based microfluidics.

Emulseo is a French company based in Pessac, a suburb of Bordeaux, in the South-West of France. Created in 2018, Emulseo comes from the Centre de Recherche Paul Pascal (CRPP) where the founding team works on surfactant formulations for droplet-based microfluidic technology.

Our team


Florine MAES

CEO and  et co-founder
For more than 10 years, Florine has had knowledge and a broad vision in physical chemistry of polymers and soft matter, and in droplet-based microfluidics. After her doctorate at the Mines ParisTech, she joined the team of Jean-Christophe Baret at the Max Planch Institute in Göttingen in 2012, then continued to work alongside Jean-Christophe Baret at CRPP in 2014. Florine joined as a Business Developer in January 2017 on the FluoSurf project which led to the creation of the company Emulseo in September 2018 and of which she is the CEO.

Justine BUNOT

Office Manager
After studying in a Business and Management School, Justine quickly developed her skills in international project management and administration by joining two companies in the United States and in England. She held the position of Project Manager for almost 6 years. Justine has a strong interest in communication and marketing and is extending her experience in the development of human-sized companies.



CTO – R&D Engineer
As a Chemical engineer, Loïc specialized in polymer chemistry during his thesis at the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne. For nearly ten years, Loïc worked on the synthesis of polymers with controlled architectures for biomedical applications (vectorization, drug delivery …) at the Laboratoire de Chimie des Polymères Organiques (LCPO) and is co-author more than 20 publications and one patent.


Microfluidics Engineer
After studying chemistry and biochemistry at the University of Bordeaux, Ariane specialized in polymer formulation during her doctoral thesis at the Laboratory of Chemistry of Organic Polymers. She has since worked as an R&D engineer and project manager in the pharmaceutical industry in the areas of controlled drug delivery and packaging for clinical tria


Production Chemist
After her PhD at the University of Versailles in organic, mineral and industrial chemistry, Wafa specialized in the synthesis of molecules for therapeutic purposes by joining the Molecular Catalysis Research Center in Nagoya (Japan).
Then she joined the European Institute of Chemistry and Biology (IECB) in Bordeaux to work as a project leader in collaboration with Dart NeuroSciences (USA) on the synthesis of cyclopentanoids for neurotherapeutic applications. Later, she joined the Laboratory of Organic Polymer Chemistry (LCPO) to work on poly(ionic liquids) and their physicochemical properties.


Microfluidics laboratory Technician
Hamza is specialized in the analysis and formulation of dispersed environment (emulsion formulation, complex fluid formulation with polymers or particles…) during his technical studies at the University of Bordeaux. He has since worked as technician R&D in the research laboratory, on enhanced oil recovery (EOR), improving the performance of detergents or the gelcoat formulation.



Business Developer
Vasily read Biochemistry and Synthetic Biology at Imperial College London. This was followed by a PhD with Yannick Rondelez at ESPCI Paris, focusing on Molecular Programs for in emulsion applications. His interest in versatile platform technologies and international experience brought him to the Emulseo commercial team. He pays particular attention to customer-tailored support.

Erwin SHAN

Sales Representative
After getting his first year of master’s degree in Green Chemistry at the University of Toulouse and two years in a Junior-Entreprise, Erwin is now in a sandwich course at Emulseo for his second year of master’s degree in the Claude Bernard University in Lyon. His dual skill both in business and in science allows him to better understand customer’s need and better guide them.
