Ph.D. Student, Rhodia, CNRS, University of Bordeaux
Aurore Merlin has received a Master’s degree in Physics and applications from the University of Marne la Vallée, France in June 2007.
Since March 2007, she has been working in the Laboratory of the Future (LoF). It is a joined lab between the University of Bordeaux, the French Institute of Scientific Research CNRS and an international chemical company, Rhodia. She began her collaboration with this laboratory as a trainee, validating a microfluidic tool for the study of crystallization. Since December 2007 she has been a Ph.D. student in Chemical Sciences for the University of Bordeaux, supervised by Jacques Leng and Jean-Baptiste Salmon, researchers for CNRS. Her research deals with the study of the formation of dense states of the soft matter using microfluidics. More particularly she use a microevaporation tool developed at LoF to shape colloidal and photonics crystals.
