I am a Senior Scientist at the IETR Laboratory of CNRS (France). My studies focus on theoretical foundations and engineering of wireless implantable and wearable bioelectronics. Such systems offer powerful capabilities for medicine and scientific research by enabling more precise monitoring, diagnostics, and treatment than ever before. Likewise, through-body wireless powering could make the lifespan of bioelectronics practically unlimited. My research stands on close collaboration between academia and industry; it encompasses interdisciplinary integration of physics, scientific computing, wireless technologies, neural interfaces, and biology. Our team is always open for new exciting collaborations and happy to consider new enthusiastic and skilled candidates to join us.

- Dec. 10, 2019 – On Dec. 13, will be giving a talk on optimal antennas for bioelectronic implants and electroceuticals at APMC 2019 conference in Singapore.
- Oct. 25, 2019 – Our new paper has just been published in IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters. Based on the theory of optimal antennas for implantable biosensors, this one shows that dielectric-loaded microstrip antennas can approach the fundamental radiation efficiency bounds. It could therefore improve the operating range and power efficiency.
