The Power List 2016
Full Professor at University Pierre and Marie Curie; Director of the Department of Analytical, Bioanalytical Sciences and Miniaturization; and Assistant Director of the Chemistry, Biology, Innovation Institute of École Supérieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles de la Ville de Paris, France
Passion: In many cases, when developing analytical methods and/or new analytical devices, you are expected to provide tools that will help people in their work or in their life. I am particularly interested in developing methods for the trace analysis of compounds in complex samples in fields such as forensics, medicine, pharmacy, environment, and archaeology. My research field allows me to work with researchers with different backgrounds, which is a very enriching situation.
Pivotal moment: I am still waiting for it!
Prediction: I think that the future lies in the development of smaller, faster, greener and cheaper analytical devices. Therefore, I believe in their miniaturization and particularly in their impact on personalized medicine.
