    Principal scientist - Project Leader

    301-500 employees

    Researcher in the European research network NeuroKCNQpathies (corresponding scientist).

    Development of an innovating research project: electrophysiological study of the encoding process of sound by primary auditory neurons on adult animals. Design and build of a specific setup (technical engineering of micromechanical, electronically and optical elements) combining electrophysiology, measurement with laser vibrometer, fluorescent imagery and real-time analysis. The study is performed in physiological conditions.
    - Tissue preparation very stable during time that is critical to perform complex studies combining different approaches (electrophysiology, pharmacology, mechanic);
    - Design and experimental use of an innovating setup combining electrophysiology, fluorescent and IR imagery, laser vibrometer, and piezomechanical stimulation;
    - Experiments performed on up to 5-6 months rats (or mice) (study on adult animals let the interesting opportunity to work on presbyacousy);
    - Recordings of sensory hair cells and single fibers of the auditory nerve.

    About him

    CEO & founder of Tree of Science, PhD in neuroscience with 10 years experience in research and academic teaching – Training, consulting, coaching in digital research tools and scientific networks (science 2,0), professional networking, digital strategy for all researchers (from PhD students, academic PhDs to R&D researchers) and research organizations

    PhD in Neuroscience, I have developed and managed several basic research projects in the field of neuroscience (ion channels, cerebellum, epilepsy, pharmacology...). My experimental approaches were using electrophysiology, pharmacology, cellular and molecular biology, cell culture, biophysics, imaging and microscopy. I have developed my own projects and also in collaboration with international teams, for instance within an European consortium of eight academic and private laboratories. My career of researcher in great laboratories (Ecole Normale Superieure, Institut Pasteur, Riken BSI) give me the opportunity to get solid technical and theoretical experience and strong skills in projects management. I have been teaching in universities for ten years. 

    I have also co-founded "Collectif PAPERA" in 2008 in order to provide supports, advice and information to PhD students, PhDs and other casual workers in Higher Education and pubic research in France. One of the aims of PAPERA is to increase the consideration of PhDs in France. I have than built an expertise in PhD programs, doctoral policies, in Higher Education and Research at French and international level. I have create and animated a community around this topic with meetings, conferences, news and articles delivering through a website and social media.

    These extensive professional experiences of researcher, academic teacher, non-profit organization give me the unique opportunity to distinguish that academic and R&D researchers need to enter in the new era of Research 2.0 to improve work efficiency, collaborative work skills, networking, personal branding, communication, online presence, professional mobility, and technology transfer.

    I've founded Tree of Science, a company that offers advice, training, and coaching for all researchers (from PhD students, academic PhDs to R&D researchers) to be the “Next scientists”. Consulting about digital research and digital strategy is also providing to research organization (academic and R&D laboratories, universities, research institutes, R&D departments). Training and coaching are delivered through an online platform (blended learning and social learning). Let's work together to improve your scientific career!
