Teaching & Pedagogy

At Phelma, I teach L3, M1 and lifelong training students the following subjects:
  • Quantum Physics
  • Thermal Physics
  • Microelectronics Technologies

Pedagogy is for me an inseparable part of teaching and I am very interested in the development of new teaching and the application of active pedagogies:
  • Development of the photovoltaic process in clean room and creation of the lab work "First generation solar cell: simulation, fabrication and characterization" (pdf)
  • Scientific debates in quantum physics (pdf)
  • Remembrance brainstorming (pdf)
  • Problem-based approach (pdf)
I am the author of 4 publications related to my teachings dealing with active pedagogy or lab work in technology related to photovoltaic.


My areas of expertise are as follows:
  • Synthesis and assembling of nanomaterials
  • Morphological, optical and electrical characterization of fabricated materials
  • Mastery of microelectronics technology for materials integration
  • Surface functionalization for grafting biological species
  • Physical phenomena modeling

Currently, my work is focused on the development, study and integration of nanonets composed of semiconductor nanowires, mainly silicon and ZnO. A nanonet,  "NANOstructured NETwork", is a random network of nanowires or nanotubes. At the macroscopic level, nanonets are made up of millions of nanowires. Consequently, the observed properties result from an average effect on all nanowires and are therefore not very sensitive to fluctuations from one nanowire to another.
Furthermore, nanonets are flexible, transparent, electrically active and highly sensitive to surface effects due to their nano components. Thus, there is great potential for applications in the field of chemical or biological sensors and flexible silicon-based electronics. More informations...
Nanonet 2D. a. Schematic representation of a 2D nanonet. b. SEM image of a ZnO nanonet illustrating the great flexibility of the material. c. SEM image of a silicon nanonet.

I have authored 37 publications, contributed to the writing of 7 book chapters and presented my work through more than 44 contributions at international conferences, including 4 invited lectures.

Administrative tasks

I am currently involved in the following administrative tasks:
  • Education advisory board at Grenoble INP
  • Supervisor of a curriculum in Physics and Nanoscience (PNS)

Women and Science

I am particularly interested in the problem of the low representation of women in scientific and technical professions. As such, I try to contribute, at my own level, to raising awareness and providing information on this subject. That's why,
