Hi !

I am Caroline, I am a PhD student on soft matter, doing both theory and experiments. On the theory side, I am supervised by Thomas Salez, in Condensed matter theory group at the LOMA, U. Bordeaux. On the experimental side I am supervised by Joshua McGraw, at Gulliver lab, ESPCI.

Research

Themes

I am interested in confined colloidal motion near soft and porous surfaces.

Techniques

Atomic Force microscopy
Spinning drop tensiometry
Fluorescence confocal microscopy
Teaching
Tutorials in 1st year of engineer school ECE.

  • Material point mechanics – 58 hours.
  • Oscillations and mechnical wave – 58 hours.
  • CV & publications
