About me

I am currently a postdoctoral fellow in the MCUBE team where I investigate the drying properties of Latex (ANR LatexDry) and the rheological properties of dense colloidal suspensions. 

Research Interests

My main research interest focuses on understanding the physical properties of disordered materials and more specifically how microstructures influences dynamical, mechanical or thermal properties. Another aspect of my research is devoted to the study of lipid bilayers by mean of machine learning tools.
