Research background

  • 2020 : 1st year Master internship at ICUBE, Strasbourg, France, on mechanical models describing the behaviour of composite materials made of natural fibers. Made under the supervision of Nadia Bahlouli.
  • 2021 : 2nd year Master internship at the IPCMS, Strasbourg, France, on the use of an AFM to characterize the properties of oxides ferroelectric thin films at the nanoscale. Made under the surpervision of Mircea V. Rastei.
  • 2022 – : Join the IPCMS as a PhD student, in the DMO and DCMI departments, under the supervision of Aziz Dinia and Mircea V. Rastei.

Academic background
