Biography

In 2011 I joined the engineering school ECE-Paris in France to study the basics in engineering combining Mathematics, Physics, Electronics and Informatics. In the two last years of a five years program, I decided to specialise in Engineering for health and completed a double degree at University Pierre and Marie Curie Paris-VI-France to be able to answer questions to improve healthy people and patients’ quality of life. I graduated with honors.

In 2015, I developed an internship project that combined in vitro experimentation with mathematical modelling to understand the response of growing nerves to mechanical and chemical gradient in vitro under the co-supervision of Drs Rebecca Shipley (UCL Mechanical Engineering) and James Phillips (UCL Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering). This project is now extended to a PhD : “Spatial Control of Physical and Chemical Factors: a New Design Rationale for Tissue- Engineered Conduits for Peripheral Nerve Repair”.
