I am currently a postdoc research associate in the Nanophotonics group (University of Cambridge) led by Prof. Jeremy Baumberg. My research, at the interface between Physics, Chemistry and Material Science, focuses on the light-matter interaction at the nanoscale.
During my PhD and my current postdoctoral fellowship I have acquired expertise in the domains of plasmonics, spectroscopy and nano-optics, working on the fabrication, characterization and investigation of the properties and applications of nanomaterials. Being able to amplify and confine light in extremely small regions, these materials can find application in a wide range of fields, including biomedicine, catalysis, energy, sensing and information technology. I’ve received my Ph.D. in 2013 from the University of Lyon, France (FemtoNanoOptics group, CNRS), working on the linear and ultrafast response of single multi-material nanoparticles. My thesis work has been awarded with the “Prix Jeunes Chercheures Saint Gobain 2013” by the French Physics Society (SFP).
