What inspired you to become a researcher in your field of expertise?

When I entered university, my professional dream was to work in a multidisciplinary field. One in which I could combine sciences, environment issues, and real-life trials for users and humans.

I am a chemist, something that seems perfect for my aims, because chemistry skills are needed in a lot of different areas! Thanks to my education in chemistry, I recently discover Civil and Road engineering during my final thesis, and understood that joining this civil engineering world was a perfect blend of skills and applications – with a tangible benefit to people’s lives.


How will your work help improve people’s quality of life?

We will be working to improve tire recycling and reduce road accidents through better materials. Good for people, the planet and new developments in material sciences innovation.

Nowadays, many people are concerned by road issues because of the emergence of new transportation devices. Our research will reflect evolving use or road space and of users and help solve upcoming issues. We can also imagine our easy to apply and green materials not only for roads infrastructures, but also for sports surfaces for example.


What are you most looking forward to as part of your Marie Curie Action?

Being part of a European project as a European citizen. I realise that learning by mobility is something that I really appreciate because of a lot of shared moment and legacy. I did an Erasmus volunteer project in my personal life and I wanted to have the same feeling and approach in my professional one too. Building connections with researchers from all over the world and developing new skills to apply in daily life as researcher or as person are also some points I wanted to develop as well.
