Mathieu Ghenni

Mathieu Ghenni

Mathieu was born in the south of France, in Perpignan, nestled between the sea and mountains. He’s always been inquisitive, especially about physics, aiming to comprehend the world around him, and biology, intrigued by coupled phenomena, which he finds truly fascinating.

He decided to pursue studies in physics, hoping to work at the interface of physics and biology. In 2021, he enrolled in the “Physics and Mechanics of Living Systems” master’s program at Paul Sabatier University in Toulouse. There, he received training in soft matter physics and fluid mechanics. In 2022, he embarked on a research internship in Toulouse at the LAPLACE laboratory with the GREPHE team, focusing on solving a biophysical model of neural dynamics using Monte Carlo methods. This experience sparked a keen interest in research.

For his subsequent internship, he delved into experimental work, particularly exploring microfluidics, inspired by its myriad applications. In 2023, he secured an internship at IMFT within the MPB team in Toulouse, under the guidance of Olivier Liot and Térence Desclaux. His project involved studying the spatio-temporal characteristics of proliferation within a clog of Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast using microfluidic tools. The goal was to comprehend the coupled phenomena between proliferation and flow through a yeast clog, focusing on the microscale, down to the level of yeast and a single pore.

Following this internship and the completion of his master’s, he obtained a doctoral position supervised by Olivier Liot and co-supervised by Morgan Delarue at LAAS. The thesis aims to deepen the preliminary findings from his internship and explore new avenues, such as the impact of cell death on the clog or the influence of turgor pressure on clog permeability. This research lies at the intersection of physics and biology.
