Recently retired, he concluded his career in 2018 as a director of research for The National Center for Scientific Research, a public organization run by the French Ministry of Education and Research with the mission to push back the frontiers of science. Dr. Evesque excelled in this role since 1993, having previously served the institute as a researcher for 13 years. Considered an expert in his field, he came to prominence in roles such as researcher and assistant professor for ESPCI Paris and postdoctoral fellow for the University of California, Los Angeles.
