Welcome to my homepage!

I am currently a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellow at Institute of Physics at University of Amsterdam. 


I obtained my PhD degree in Mechanics and Physics of Fluids from Ecole Centrale Marseille, France. I have received extensive training in physicochemistry, specifically in soft particles, interfacial assembly, active emulsion, and mechanical instabilities. I specialize in employing various techniques such as optical microscopy, laser light scattering, and fast imaging to address physical challenges in fluid-solid interactions.


Recently, I have been focusing on droplet dynamics and lipid-based nanoparticles in soft matter physics, particularly for medical applications. My goal is to understand the fundamentals of drop coalescence in droplet formation, and to investigate how atomization (the process of droplet formation) affects the adsorption of lipid nanoparticles at the air-water interface, mimicking lung surfactant in alveoli.



You can find more about my research activities and experience in my RESEARCH.

Research interests:

  • Droplet dynamics
  • Lipid particles and membranes
  • Active fluid-solid interactions
  • Complex fluids

All things are difficult before they are easy.
