Since 2024, I have been a post-doctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer research (Mainz, Germany) in the group of Prof. H.-J. Butt. From 2020 to 2023, I did my PhD in the SIMM lab (ESPCI Paris) under the supervision of François Lequeux, Laurence Talini and Emilie Verneuil. I have been a ENS de Lyon student from 2017 to 2020, where I obtained a master’s degree in Physics.

Research interests

My research topics include the physics of foams, emulsions and wetting. During my PhD, I researched the effect of antifoaming additives on the foaming of organic liquids. This led me to experimentally investigate the interactions between microdroplets and air-liquid interfaces across various scales ranging from foams to bubbles and suspended thin liquid films. For this purpose, I used techniques like light interferometry, dynamic light scattering and tensiometry. I also enjoy developing in-house experiments and codes for image analysis.
