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.




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.
