As part of the Multimedia Usability Project, I researched, designed and tested a new interface for uploading files to Wikimedia Commons, the free media library associated with Wikipedia.
Because digiKam provides the tools and Commons the problems, the two should enjoy a happy marriage.
Where our hero makes an early Christmas wishlist and implores the developer fairies to give Wikimedia Commons some much-needed love.
A collection of resizable, editable information graphics I used in my Ph.D thesis to explain the various uses of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) for biology and healthcare.
Where our hero rediscovers the irreplaceable value of user testing, and valiantly turns a rebel mollusc into an exotic flower.
I am glad to announce that my Ph.D thesis, entitled Technologies PNIPAM pour les laboratoires sur puce (“PNIPAM technologies for labs-on-chips”), is now available for download.
For three years, I worked at the crossroads of physics, microelectronics, biology and chemistry to develop miniaturized laboratories based on a polymer that changes properties with temperature.
My Ph.D work has been very interdisciplinary and I wanted to dedicate a special section of my thesis about how cool, yet difficult, it is to work at the crossroads of biology, chemistry, physics & technology.
In January I attended the Biodevices conference in Funchal, Madeira, where I presented a poster entitled Thermoresponsive polymer-based microdevice for nano-liquid chromatography.
The lab where I currently work recently inaugurated two new buildings dedicated to technological research. As the official photographer for the event, I took this opportunity to take a few pictures of the facility itself to illustrate related Wikipedia articles.
