Bio:


  • ISEA2020

    Camille Duprat is an assistant professor at the École Polytechnique (Palaiseau, France). She defended her PhD in 2009 and joined the hydrodynamics lab (Ladhyx) in September 2013. Her research focuses on functional textiles. She has been studying wetting and drying of fibrous media since 2009, in particular in situations where the fibers composing the textile are flexible, and has investigated the role played by elasticity on the wetting and drying dynamics of these “reactive” textiles. These studies have led to several publications in peer reviewed journals, as well as several communications in international meetings and invited talks. Another focus of her research is the fabrication of innovative smart fibers that reacts to an external stimuli, in order to tune passively the response of the material. For this project, entitled “Deformation of hygroscopic fibrous materials”, she has obtained funding from the French National Research Agency (ANR) within a competitive program designed to finance the installation of Young researchers in France in order to develop an ambitious and innovative project. Within this context, she has initiated a study on fog collection in 2014. Since 2018, she is the holder of the professoral chair Jean Marjoulet to develop her research on the mechanics of smart textiles at Polytechnique.
