Research summary:

My Ph.D. was focused on the nucleation of small organic molecules and simple proteins under external energy given by either light irradiation, electric field or ultrasounds. During my Ph.D, I elaborated a microfluidic tool allowing the separation between the nucleation and the growth of the crystals, to be able to measure the induction time more precisely.

I then worked on developing microfluidic tools for biologic application, such as the study of the thickness of blood cells.

As a postdoctoral associate in the MIT-Novartis center for continuous manufacturing, my work has been focused on the comparison between different methods for spraying solutions. By comparing electrospraying and spray drying, the goal was not only to be able to distinguish which method was more easily applicable to a continuous crystallization process, but also to study the influence of the intense electric field (used in the electrospraying) on the nucleation.
