Cécile is a PhD student in materials science and engineering. Her research is focused on the creation of new methods for manufacturing high-performance polymer and composite materials in a rapid, energy-efficient manner. Specifically, she studies interfacial polymerization (IP), a process by which a polymer is formed at the interface between two immiscible liquids (often water and an organic solvent), each containing one type of reactive species (initiator or monomer). She uses MATLAB to enable experimental data analysis and prediction of IP-based process kinetics, as well as future perspective on the integration of MATLAB algorithms in manufacturing and 3D printing. Cécile earned an MS in materials science and engineering from MINES ParisTech, France.
