I am a CNRS researcher and works in Laboratoire Rhéologie et Procédés (Univ. Grenoble Alpes) since October 2016. I defensed my PhD in biomechanics in 2011 and then moved towards at the interface of fluid mechanics and soft matter. You will find here details on my current project (soft microparticles in flow) and also on my previous work in biofluids and biomechanics. Good navigation!
