I joined the biomechanics and bioengineering laboratory (BMBI) at Compiègne as CNRS Associate Scientist in 2015, where I started studying drug delivery by capsules, either by mass transfer across their membrane or by their break-up. My research activities fall into the areas of biophysics and complex fluids with applications in biomedical engineering. In particular, I am interested in phenomena occurring at the microscopic scale and involving fluid-structure interaction with mass and/or heat transfer. I am using and constantly developing state-of-the-art numerical methods to perform multi-physics computer simulations. I have contributed to study pattern formation (wrinkles and dendrites), dynamics and rheology of fluid-filled soft particles (capsules, vesicles and blood cells) and nanoparticles (nanofluids and their contribution to the stability of liquid-liquid interfaces). From such studies, I try to understand the interplay between an excitation placed upon the system at the macroscopic scale, and its impact on the dynamics and structure of the system components at the microscopic scale.
