CURRENT RESEARCH AREA :

Our research themes focus on the rheology of complex materials and biological fluids, answering fundamental and applied questions in physics, biophysics, medicine and aeronautics.

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

NEWS:

Molecular rotors as intracellular probes of red blood cell stiffness, A. Briole, T. Podgorski, & B. Abou, Soft Matter 17, 4525-4537 (2021).

Communication versus Waterproofing : the Physics of insect cuticular hydrocarbons, F. Menzel, S. Morsbach, J. H. Martens, P. Raeder, S. Hadjaje, M. Poizat, & B. Abou, Journal of Experimental Biology 222 : jeb210807 (2019).

An article on the ’Melting properties of cuticular hydrocarbon layer’ by my colleague Florian Menzel (Mainz university) on our ant study (2020).

I am pleased with the publication of our new book on the relationship between Sex and Gender: from biology to sociology (in French) with my colleague H. Berry (INRIA).
