Scientific summary

Fisrt of all, I worked using analytical electron microscopy during 6 years (1995-2001) : SEM and TEM.

Now,  I used contact angle (static and dynamic) to analyse the wetting properties of surfaces. In parallel, Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy complete the experiments (2001 to now).

The main topic of my research is around the study of the interface between abiotic surfaces (biomaterials) and biological cells. electrochemical biosensors are also developped to go further in the understanging of this interface.
