Jean-Noël Jaubert was born in 1967, Marseille, France. He is a Professor of chemical engineering thermodynamics at ENSIC (Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Industries Chimiques), a state-run institution of higher education characterized by a highly selective admission procedure and is thus restricted to the best 10 % of high school students. He received his doctorate in 1993 from University of La Méditerranée (France). He is reviewer for over 30 leading international journals and has published more than 80 research papers. In 2008, he was the Chairman of the 23rd European Symposium on Applied Thermodynamics. Jaubert is the French delegate at the working party thermodynamics and transport properties of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering and currently runs the research group “Thermodynamics and Energy” of the LRGP (Laboratoire Réactions et Génie des Procédés). His research interests include the development of predictive thermodynamic models based on the group contribution concept, the use of exergetic life cycle assessment in order to reduce CO2 emissions, the measurement and correlation of liquid-vapour equilibrium under high pressure, enhanced oil recovery, and the development of complex algorithms to compute global phase diagrams with emphasis to stability analysis.
