Functions within Institut Curie:

I am a lecturer at Sorbonne Université, and conduct my research in the Physico-Chimie Curie laboratory. As a physicist, I use theoretical approaches and tools from statistical physics, non-equilibrium thermodynamics and soft matter to understand the collective behavior of cells and the dynamic properties of tissues.

My research focuses on the development of theoretical tools (integral geometry to capture tissue deformation, classification of microscopic interactions by the renormalization group) and their application to specific biological problems (role of topology in the organization of cell polarity, coupling between electro-hydraulic properties and tissue growth). My work provides a better understanding of the physical processes involved during morphogenesis.
