CURRENT RESEARCH AREA :

Our research themes focus on the rheology of complex materials and biological fluids, at different length and time scales; they answer fundamental and applied questions in physics, biophysics, medicine and aeronautics.

  • Glass transition in colloids: aging, dynamic heterogeneities, fluctuation-dissipation relations; out-of-equilibrium statistical physics
  • Rheology and microrheology of complex and biological fluids
  • Biophysics of insect secretion: link with insect adhesion and acclimation
  • Intracellular nanorheology in red blood cells, application to sickle cell anemia
