DiStruc people in Bordeaux meeting.
A European program of excellence
Louis' PhD project was embedded in the Innovative Training Network called DiStruc, which counted 15 PhD students hosted by 9 academic and industrial organisations. Interactions between students and researchers were promoted by regular progress meetings, workshops and secondments. (read more)
Colloidal liquid crystals confined into a square.
Louis got familiar with many soft matter topics through group presentations, seminars, workshops and conferences. But his expertise is on phase behavior, dynamics and confinement of colloidal liquid crystals on one hand; and on the other hand gene expression at the single cell level.
Louis' general interest is for jobs with positive impact on society. He is particularly curious about research connected to health and climate change issues.
Short-lived hand stand.
Louis acquired a lot of transferable skills such as writing (reports and papers), presenting (talks and posters), teaching (undergraduates and general public) and supervising (summer and master students).
On the top of that Louis mastered the following experimental techniques: microscopy (SEM, confocal, BF, fluoresence), soft lithography, colloid synthesis, image analysis, bacterial cell culture, Gibson assembly, PCR amplification.
