Current research:

Integrating microrobots inside microfluidic chips for sensing applications.

  • I work with untethered robots at the micron scale evolving in fluid. These robots are propelled with a homogenous rotating magnetic field. The application of this work is the selective handling and characterization of biological samples in a closed in vitro environment.

Teaching

From 2013 to 2016, I had the opportunity to teach practical sessions in mathematics (Matlab) and C programming for engineering students (bachelor level) at Polytech Paris-Sud.

Thesis work overview

The goal and challenges of my thesis are recapitulated in the following video. It was presented at London in June 2016 for the microrobotics and microfabrication video competition of the 9th Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics.
