Research Interests

I explore new strategies to build functional devices based on nanostructures and new materials – and in the meanwhile to contribute to a better understanding of the physical properties of these new systems.

Main Research interests :

  • Charge & Spin transport properties of 2D materials and van der Waals heterostructures.
  • Optoelectronics properties of nanomaterials including 2D materials, Quantum dots, Molecules, and their hybrids.
  • Magnetic properties of nanomaterials and nanostructures.
  • Functional device based on nanomaterials.
  • Nanofabrication

Scientific life : I am co-animating the Research Axe “Electronic Transport électronique and its Interfaces” of the GDR 2112 “HOWDI” research group: Van der Waals hetero-structures of low dimensionality.

Present status

  • Enseignant-Chercheur (Associate Professor) at Université de Strasbourg (UNISTRA).
  • Junior Fellow at Institut Universitaire de France (IUF).


  • Nanofabrication in StNano clean room.
  • van der Waals stacking.
  • Optical & electronic lithography.
  • Low temperature magneto-transport measurements (AC/DC, 1.5K to 330K, 8 Tesla).
  • Photoconduction measurements.
  • AFM, PFM.
  • Electrochemistry, Template synthesis, drop casting, optically triggered self assembly process.
  • Focus Ion Beam.
