Capillary Forces for Microrobotique
26 rue de l'Epitaphe
Since 2020, I am CNRS researcher at FEMTO-ST institute.
I received a Ph.D in 2016 for my work focusing on mobile magnetic microrobot inside microfluidic chip made C2N-CNRS. I then started a postdoctoral position in Imperial Collge London where I focused on microrobotic applied to non-invasive surgery. I particularly developed floating magnetic microrobot for flexible microelectronic assembly as well as micropneumatic and microfluidic actuators embedded at a capillary tip.
Right now, I am focusing on the use of the capillary forces toward the development of compact micromecanism. I am especially interested in the conception, model and control of a micromeric fluid joint. This joint would connect micro-element with a liquid drop allowing several degrees of freedoms with a compact design.
I am also co-organiser of the Workshop on Capillary Manipulation for 2021
