Cécile Cottin-Bizonne / ​CNRS Researcher at ILM, University of Lyon

Cécile Cottin-Bizonne is a CNRS researcher at Institut Lumière Matiere in the University of Lyon. She graduated in Physics in 2000 and received her PhD in 2003 from University of Lyon. From 2003 to 2005 she worked as a post-doctoral associate at Cornell University. Her research focuses on the properties of liquids at interfaces and more specifically on the dynamical coupling between a fluid in motion close to a solid-liquid interface and the nature of this interface. She contributed to the understanding of subtle fundamental phenomena, such as the nature of hydrodynamic boundary condition, colloidal self-assembly, interfacial phoretic mechanisms, etc. and showed how these could be used dynamically, in particular to self-propel particles and explore new fascinating questions such as the physics of active matter.
