    I am an Assistant Project Scientist working with Prof. Nicholas Boechler in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of California San Diego. I received my Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Bordeaux. I have strong background in the fields of opto-acoustics and mechanics of materials, and my research interests are the study of: macro- to nanoscale dynamic behavior of advanced topological materials and biological media, the design of new bio-inspired and bio-derived dynamically-responsive materials with applications ranging from thermal energy transport to shock mitigation, as well as the design of new biomedical ultrasound imaging techniques.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
