Our research interests are mainly in experimental physics of fluids at interfaces. We explore how tuning surface properties allow us to control the behaviour or fluids. We investigate how micro and nanotextures combined with chemistry modify the behaviour of droplets from the millimetric to the nanometric scale (water repellency, antifogging, antifrosting, …). Down to the atomic scale, we experimentally study the new properties of fluids and ions confined in channels with molecular dimensions. Through our research, we aim to develop new technology that will benefit the society and contribute to tackle the major challenges we face such as global warming, freshwater production, or energy decarbonization.
