    En résumé

    > Research Engineer in the field of Polymer and Composite research and development - 4 years and 9 months of international experience - an expertise and skills developed in a professional environment - a willingness to continue in Polymers and Composites R&D > My experiences (cf. below for more details) Lastly, I worked on a project with the objective to valorize polylactide (PLA) and widen its application fields by improving its mechanical properties. This objective was fulfilled through the preparation of PLA-based polymer blends by extrusion and the development of a new compatibilization method for immiscible polymer blends using natural phenolic compounds. Through my experiences, I also worked on the formulation of natural polymer-based hydrogels (photo-polymerization) used for bone repair as well as on the development of PVC-based composites loaded with wood fillers to improve PVC mechanical and thermal properties. > My Training (cf. below for more details): - Master in Eco-design of Polymers and Composites (2013) Skills/knowledge: general knowledge and preparation of polymers and composites by different routes, materials characterization, Eco-design - DUT Physical Measurements (2010) Skills/knowledge: material characterization, fluid mechanics, mechanics … > An overview of my skills - Preparation of composites (extrusion, injection-moulding, RTM, infusion ...) and polymers (extrusion, injection, mass/solution/bulk polymerization...) - Characterization of molecular (FTIR, NMR, GPC...), mechanical (tensile/bending/impact/compression test...), morphological (confocal microscopy, SEM, AFM...), thermal (DSC, TGA) and thermo-mechanical (DMA) properties of materials - Eco-design expertise (LCA, use of natural resources ...) - Projects management in the framework of my PhD thesis and my studies in collaboration with professionals (DCNS, LIST), supervision of trainees, results valorisation (scientific papers, international conferences…) > Feel free to communicate through my different addresses
