CNRS research associate
My main current interest is ultrathin 2D colloidal nanoparticles: their synthesis, surface chemisty and conformation. I also study the self-assembly of nanocrystals in the perspective of the emergence of collective properties. This implies understanding colloidal forces between particles at the nanoscale. I am also interested in probing the formation mechanism of nanoparticles using in situ synchrotron based X-ray techniques.
I have a PhD (2006) from École Polytechnique and i hold the "habilitation à diriger les recherches" since 2016.
