In 1985 he was visiting scientist at the Herzberg Institute of Astrophysics, National Research Council of Canada, Ottawa and in 1986 a state professorship in France at Villeneuve d'Ascq (Universite de Lille),. In 1990 he spent time at the Catholic University of Nijmegen, Laboratory of Molecular and Laser Physics (The Netherlands). In 1991 he was Visiting Research Scientist at the Chemistry Department, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA. He worked at the University of Waterloo, , Canada in the Center for Molecular Beams and Laser Chemistry in 1992 and 1993 and he have spent a year as guest research professor of the Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan at the Institute of Atomic and Molecular Sciences. Then In 1996 he was W.F. James Professor of Pure and Applied Science at the St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia, Canada. Since 1980 he have been active in the field of laser induced chemistry and the emission spectroscopic studies of laser generated plasmas. In 2006 he retired but remained active at my former Institute, the Central Research Institute of Chemistry as science advisor emeritus. Since 3 years he associated with the Research Center of Natural Sciences of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Budapest, as emeritus science advisor..His CV has been published by several international biographical organs, first in 1981 in the Who's Who in the World, , USA, then in several other published works, e.g. in the UK. A compilation of about 80 of my scientific papers are available at Research Gate.

Thiry Damien got his PhD in Chemistry (“Experimental and theoretical study of the synthesis of thiol-based plasma polymers”) at the University of Mons in December 2013.Then in February 2014-January 2016 he Positioned as Post-Doc at CNRS Institute of Material in Nantes (France) in the plasma thin film group.Since February 2016 he is working as a Senior researcher at the University of Mons in the laboratory of Plasma Surface Interaction and also in charge at the University of Mons of the course “Surface Chemistry” in the framework of the Master of Chemistry.
Damien Thiry research activities deal with the field of plasma polymerization. The objective is to enlarge the understanding at the fundamental level of the growth mechanism of functionalized plasma polymer films. His research philosophy is based on a multidisciplinary approach combining plasma diagnostic (mass spectrometry, optical emission and FTIR spectroscopies) and thin film characterization (XPS, ToF-SIMS). Furthermore, for a detailed understanding of the numerous reactions pathways taking place in the plasma, theoretical tools (e.g. DFT) are usually employed and correlated to experimental data. The understanding gained in this topic paves the way for a more efficient use of plasma polymers in important technological applications including the fabrication of biosensor, platform for biomolecules immobilization or cell proliferation. Recently, based on the expertise gained during his post-doc position, his research also focuses on the synthesis of nano-organized functionalized plasma polymer films.
