About my research

I am a researcher (DR CNRS), specialist in the physics and chemistry of colloids. My research work first focused on the coupling between gel mechanics and chemical dissipative structures: chemical bistability, Turing structures, self-oscillating gels (at the Paul Pascal Research Centre, 1999-2003). Then, at the IMRCP laboratory in Toulouse (2003-2011), I worked on nanometric assemblies based on polymers, nanoparticles and oligonucleotides. Since 2011, I have been working at the Institut des Sciences Chimiques de Rennes, with a focus on the chemistry of nano-objects: characterization, surface chemistry and functional assemblies, and also on food science and formulation. I am member of the  CoPil of the CNano, in charge of the North and West regions.

 

 

Hybridosomes

One of the key results of our team's recent research is the development of Hybridosomes ®, which are hybrid nanocapsules made from nanoparticles and polymers. The elaboration of Hybridosomes relies on a spontaneous emulsification process, the Ouzo effect.
