Several patents on crystal growth processes, furnaces and insitu diagnosis. Published more than 80 research articles in refereed scientific journals and books.

EXPERIENCE:
Dr. Favier is currently the Advisor of the Director of the Material Science Research Center (CEREM) at the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) and is presently detached to CNES. He proposed the MEPHISTO program, a collaborative project between the French Space Agency and NASA, and has developed many other scientific projects in collaboration with the United States since 1985. He is the principal investigator (P.I.) for a MEPHISTO materials processing experiment, which made its debut on the United States Microgravity Payload in 1992 and 1994 and is scheduled for subsequent Space Shuttle flights, the next being STS-75 in 1996. He has been a CNES payload specialist candidate since 1985. He has been P.I. of more than 10 space experiments in collaboration with ESA, NASA, and the Russians.

CURRENT ASSIGNMENT:
Dr. Favier was assigned as an alternate payload specialist on STS-65/IML-2, the second International Migrogravity Laboratory mission, and supported the mission as a Crew Interface Coordinator (CIC/APS) from the Payload Operations Control Center (POCC) at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.
