Associate professor, Aix Marseille université

As a physicist, my reserche interest was first focused on photonic crystals, in the framework of my PhD project, at the Université of Grenoble, and later during my postdoctoral stay at the University of Wuppertal (Germany), in the group of Prof. Sotomayor Torres.

Since 2003, I’m an associate professor at the University of Aix-Marseille. Until 2015, my research activity at the Fresnel institute was first carried out in the MOSAIC team. Since 2016, I have cofounded the COMiX team.

My research activity is devoted to microscopy. I develop novel physical approaches and microscopy systems in order to explore biophysical systems, such as cell membranes, protein aggregates, and biominerals.

I teach physics at the Faculty, mainly thermodynamics, optics, and vision science.
