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 15 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 10 years on topics more related to cell biology.
Currently, I’m an Associate Professor at the University of Twente (The Netherlands) and program director for the topic “Innovative Nanotechnology for Medicine” at the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology. I’m leading a team called “Applied Microfluidics for BioEngineering Research – AMBER” which is part of the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology and the MIRA Institute for Biomedical Engineering and Technical Medicine. My research interests include single cell (molecular) analysis, drug screening assays, organ-on-a-chip applications and assisted reproductive technologies.
