I have followed an interdisciplinary cursus at the ESPCI (Paris, France) allying physics, chemistry and biology, with a specialization in chemistry and a major in life sciences/biology, followed by a MSc diploma at the interface and chemistry and biology at the MNHN (Paris, France). For more than 18 years, I have been working in the field of microfluidics / lab-on-a-chip technology focusing on biological applications; first for protein analysis by mass spectrometry, and for ca. 20 years on topics more related to cell biology.

Currently, I’m an Adjunct Professor at the University of Twente (The Netherlands) and leading a team called AMBER (Applied Microfluidics for BioEngineering Research), which is part of the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology and the TechMed Centre. My research interests include single cell (molecular) analysis, drug screening assays, organ-on-a-chip applications and assisted reproductive technologies.
