Currently PhD student in UPMC university in Paris, I am working on elasto-capillarity (deformation of elastic structures by interfaces). I work on the fundamental part of this problem, and use model experiments and theory to deepen our understanding of it. As instances are found throughout Nature, I collaborate with zoologists, and the goal of my current experiment is to explain the supercontraction phenomena observed in spider silk.
