Full CV (updated March 2020)


I am a Maître de Conférences (French equivalent to Associate Professor) at le CNAM. To have access to an overview of my research from 2007 to 2017 written for my Habilitation obtained in September 2017, you can read the manuscript here.

Editor for Materials Today Communications.

I am a Polymer Scientist by training. I graduated from the ESPCI in Paris (in 2004), then did my PhD in the SIMM lab with C. Creton and D. Hourdet (obtained in 2007). I then worked for 2 years as a post-doc in A. Crosby's group at UMass Ahmerst (MA, USA). After another 6 months post-doc with L. Léger at Université Paris-Sud in Orsay, I was hired at le CNAM in September 2010.

Le CNAM (Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers) is an historical (established in 1794) French institute initially dedicated to teaching for working adults, but has now expanded also to more traditional teaching. It is located in the 3rd arrondissement in Paris and this is where I teach. I mainly teach Polymer Science, from basics to specific properties, with a focus on the relationships between the chemical structure and the macroscopic properties (which is also the global idea behind my research, see below).

However, my research is conducted at the PIMM lab in Paris (Arts et Métiers ParisTech), a lab mainly focused on processing, engineering and mechanics of materials.

The main idea connecting my research is understanding the role of the materials structure (whether chemical architecture or surface patterning, for example) on the macroscopic properties (adhesion, mechanical, gas permeability...). I then try to "build" new materials, using any tool from chemistry to processing.

I am part of the Polymer & Composites team, most of my research is in collaboration with G. Régnier, C. Sollogoub, M. Gervais, S. Roland and A. Guinault within the PIMM. National collaborators include L. Léger, F. Restagno and C. Poulard (LPS, Paris-Sud Université), E. Raphaël and J.D. McGraw (PCT, ESPCI), T. Salez (LOMA, University of Bordeaux)... International collaborators include G.B. McKenna (TTU, USA).
