I am from Soissons, small town in France and I joined Pr. Siegel’s and Pr. Dordick’s group in February 2011.
2011-2013: Post-doctoral Research associate at RPI.
2007-2010: Ph.D in Biology and Medical Sciences, INSERM U957, University of Nantes, France. Thesis title: “Interaction between stem cells and nanostructured implanted surface”
2006-2007: Master 2 Research. Sc. in Biomolecule and Cell Dynamic. University of Reims, France. Report title: “effect of thalidomide on MDR1 expression in sensible and resistant myeloma cells”.
2005-2006: Master 1 in Biochemistry. University of Reims, France. Project title: “Sifting by dHPLC and capillary Sequencing: Interest for the study of BRCA1 polymorphism”.
My research is focused on the cell-nanosubstrate interaction. Our studies involve Mesenchymal and Embryonic Stem Cells for a better understanding on the mechanism of adhesion and differentiation of Stem Cells on well-control nanostructured surface. For this, nanostructured surface were obtained by oblique-angle deposition of SiO2 and TiO2 and characterized.
