After obtaining a DEA (Diploma of Advanced Studies) from Grenoble INP, Didier Chaussy completed and presented his PhD thesis on paper pulp refining in 1992. Later that year, he was recruited by the Agefpi (Grenoble INP-Pagora's management association) as a research engineer, before being named as Associate Professor (1995) and then Professor (2005) at Grenoble INP.

The subjects he teaches student engineers at Grenoble INP-Pagora include surface treatments, printing processes, non-wovens and the thermophysical characteristics of lignocellulosic materials. He was in charge of the Paper and cardboard processing option from 1997 to 2001, having played an active role in its creation in 1993. In 1998, he also founded LGP2's Paper and cardboard processing research team, which later became the Multiscale Biosourced Materials team. In parallel, he held a number of other responsibilities, heading the Industrial Relations & Job Placement programme from 1992 to 2000 and the school's library from 2003 to 2010.

At LGP2, his research covers process engineering (surface treatment, thermoforming, printing) and surface functionalization through printing processes (energy sector: fuel cells, batteries, solar photovoltaic cells). He headed the Surface functionalization through printing processes research team from 2005 to 2015.

Today, Didier Chaussy takes charge of the laboratory with the objective of boosting the visibility of his expertise in innovative areas: biorefinery, nanocellulose, surface functionalization through printing processes, printed electronics, etc. He is also keen to expand LGP2's research into various other fields of application: energy, medicine, plastics, construction, packaging, etc., with the ambition of constantly improving the relationship between research and training, which is fundamental for an engineering school.
