I studied molecular photonics at the Ecole Normale Superieure de Cachan in France and I wanted to do a PhD in biophotonics. I was very interested in the interdisciplinary nature of this CDT and it was a great opportunity for me to learn more about material sciences. Moreover, the rotations will truly complete my bioengineering background (from University of Technology of Compi├Ęgne) and give me more chance to complete successfully my PhD.

PhD Title: Single-Molecule Imaging of Protein-Dna Interactions Using Fluorescent Nanodiamonds
PhD Supervisor: Prof. Achillefs N. Kapanidis
Institution: University of Oxford
Collaborators: Pr. Oliver Williams (Cardiff University) and Pr. Jason Smith (University of Oxford)
