Known for his writings and lectures on personal development, he published a particularly successful essay in 2016, titled Free up your mind!. However, he was the subject of criticism as he was accused of artificially inflating his CV and of using his three doctoral diplomas (Ph.Ds) to talk about sciences that are not in his areas of expertise. The scientific accuracy of some of his statements and publications was questioned by other researchers. In the 2020s, he has become one of the popular figures of the antivax movement in France.
