  • 01/2006 – 03/2010

PhD student at the University of Montpellier (France) working on surface modification of biomaterials. Under the supervision of Pr. C. Picart. I engineered a new type of bioactive surface modification made from biocompatible polymer loaded with a growth factor. The delivery of the protein triggers the formation of bone in contact with the material. A collaboration in association with orthopedic surgeons has been established for further development.

  • 08/2005- 01/2006

Masters in bioengineering as part of a double degree exchange program with the University of Oklahoma (USA). Under the supervision of Pr. P. McFetridge. I developed of a scaffold material for peripheral nerve and cardiovascular tissue engineering. The research gave rise to two peered reviewed articles and a Masters degree in Biological Engineering.

Bioengineering student (Institute of Engineering Sciences - University of Clermont-Ferrand, France).

Research interests

Hi Everybody. I'm a postdoc in Katharina Ribbeck's lab. The lab is multidisciplinary and focused on biological hydrogels and in particular mucus and biofilms. My work is focused on the study of cell-mucin interactions, the physicochemical characterization of mucin coatings and the development of mucin-based biomaterials. I have been extracting the essential component of mucus (mucins), and am doing exploratory work to expose the potential of this molecule to be used as a building block for new biomaterials. These biomaterials can be used to better understand mucus (its biophysical properties and its biology) and for biomedical applications such as drug delivery.
