I am a post-doctoral researcher in the group of Ben Simons. I use methods from soft matter, hydrodynamics, mechanics and statistical mechanics to study developmental processes.

My main research interests currently are:

I also collaborate with Alstom to understand and improve from a soft matter approach the functionning of their cooling devices such as the Capillary Pumped Loop.

In Plain English

I am trained as a theoretical physicist, and use mathematical models to study and (try to) predict quantitatively the development of embryos as well as cancer initiation. I also like to do a bit of experimental work from time to time!
