Abstract : I am a physicist and a theoretician of soft condensed matter. In various fields (polymers, wetting, adhesives, foams), I looked at different problems: dynamic entanglements on the molecular scale, polymer conformation at interfaces, vicso-elastic interactions around heterogeneities (cavitation in adhesives), capillarity, osmotic pressure and dilatancy in liquid foams, dilatancy and local mechanisms in soft, immersed grains, tensorial formulation of plasticity from large elastic deformations in foams. Since I arrived at Matter and Complex System laboratory, I am interested in the work led by several groups on the mechanics of living matter at length scales from the cytoskeleton and the entire cell up to cellular aggregates and developing organisms.
