Dr. Franck Pigeonneau is currently working in the joint laboratory between the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) and the company Saint-Gobain. He received his Ph. D. in 1998 from the University Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris, France). His main research activities are devoted to the transport phenomena in high viscous fluids relevant for glass melting processes. He is using COMSOL to study mass transfer around bubbles carried by a liquid that has undergone chemical reactions, and natural convection in glass furnaces.
