Since 2006, I teach at the Grenoble Institute of Technology, Grenoble INP - Phelma at the Master I and II levels in the track Biomedical Engineering and in the International Master program “Nanotechnology”. I am in charge of the following subjects : Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, Immunology and Biochip technology.

Within the IMBM team, we are working at the interface between material science, electrochemistry, biochemistry and cellular biology. We have expertise in the assembly and characterization of molecular structures of various complexities at the material-electrolyte interface. We are using biophysical methods to precisely control and analyze the surfaces of our materials or the biological matter organized at the its surface. We are interested in surface adsorption, self-assembly and covalent grafting of biomacromolecules in liquid conditions.
I am particularly involved in two projects :
  • Protein adsorption and conformational changes upon contact with material surfaces.
  • Cell adhesion on material surfaces.
I yearly supervise 1-2 Master II students. Since joining LMGP-IMBM, I have co-supervised the thesis of 3 PhD students. Currently I am co supervising 2 PhD students (Karim Chouchane and Thibaut Frachon) working on insulin aggregation at material/liquid/air interfaces. TF is a Cifre fellow and his thesis emanates from a collaboration with an industrial partner, Eveon (

Since 2006, Associate professor at Grenoble INP - Phelma (Molecular and Cell Biology, Immunology, Biosensors), where I am also in charge of  :
  • International Relations G-INP - Phelma Biomedical Engineering
Since 2008, I am responsible for international exchanges of students from and to Phelma in Biomedical Engineering. I am in charge of establishing contacts with partner universities in my field of expertise. I advise Phelma students for academic exchanges abroad and coordinate the stay of incoming exchange students at our university.
  • The Biotech facility at CIME Nanotech
Since 2006, I am co-responsible for the Biotech facility of the “Centre interuniversitaire de microélectonique et nanotechnologies” (CIME Nanotech). This facility is equipped with state-of-the-art techniques to isolate, purify and characterize nucleic acids and proteins as well as cultivating and imaging pro- and eukaryotic cells.  The facility hosts yearly an average of 6000 student-hours originating from different universities and educational programs.
