Fouzia Boulmedais

Fouzia Boulmedais graduated from the University of Strasbourg where she received her Ph.D. in chemistry and physical chemistry in 2003. From 2001 to 2003, she worked as a post-doc with prof. Marcus Textor at ETH Zurich (Switzerland) and with Prof. Gleb Sukhorukhov at Max Planck Institute (Golm, Allemagne). After a second post-doc with Valérie Marchi in 2005, she was appointed CNRS researcher at Institut Charles Sadron. She obtained her “Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches” in 2010. Since 2012, she is deputy director of Institut Charles Sadron in charge of the technical and administrative staff. Her research activity deals with the use of an electrical stimulus to study its influence on polyelectrolyte multilayer films and to control the construction of polymer films as well as with the application of polyelectrolyte films in the field of biomaterials particularly as antibacterial and antifungal coatings. She is co-author of 50 publications and 2 patents. In 2013, she received the Young Researcher prize of the Division of Physical Chemistry, common to the Chemical Society of France and the French Physical Society.

As part of her Fellowship, Fouzia Boulmedais is working on the project Morphogenic self-build-up of polymeric films controlled by electrochemistry.
