Hassan Saad started his PhD in the group in 2017, on bioinspired ceramic materials. He came with chocolate on the very first day, which was a really good start.
Sidhanth Tyagi started his PhD in the group in 2017, with lots of confocal, microfluidics, and emulsions (not in this order). Watch out for his work.
Dmytro Dedovets freezes emulsions under the confocal during his postdoc with us. He loves building things. Hates couscous, though.
Felix Ginot also freezes particle suspensions under the confocal during his postdoc with us, and writes tons of Python code. He believes colloids should always be green.
Malgorzata Marcinkowska is a PhD student working on bioinspired materials. She is based in Lyon. She speaks way too many languages.
Past group members
Jordi Seuba is back to Barcelona after his PhD with us and a postdoc (also with us but based in Lyon). He froze and broke hundreds-if not thousands-of samples. He was in love with flan pâtissier.
Moreno Marcellini looked at ice crystals growing with the confocal. He’s now looking for a job in science. He specialized in everything.
Cécile Noirjean watched paint dry with the confocal, and it was actually really cool
Brice Saint Michel is a postdoctoral fellow, based in Lyon. Based at IRPHE, Brice did a lot of optical microscopy and physics of freezing colloids.
Juliette Maria is a PhD student working on the fundamentals of colloids freezing
Florian Bouville is now at ETH Zurich after defending his PhD in December 2013. He aligned platelets by freezing, and used it to make some really tough ceramics. A true geek, too.
Idris Amirouche did his internship with us. Some very neat work that we patented. He now works for Saint-Gobain.
Audrey Lasalle did her PhD in the lab. She mostly worked on the relationships between the properties of the colloidal suspension and the freezing behavior. She now works for Saint-Gobain, but sill provides me with chocolate on a regular basis.
