Education and experience

Dr Olivier Sandre is tenured CNRS researcher since 2001. After his PhD in 2000 on the dynamics of pores in giant lipid vesicles supervised by Pr F. Brochard-Wyart in Curie Institute and a 1-year post-doc in California (UCSB) with Pr D. J. Pine and Pr D. K. Fygenson about physical measurements on biological tubules, he came back to UPMC in Paris in 2001 in Pr V. Cabuil’s team to work on polymeric systems doped with magnetic nanoparticles. He joined the LCPO in 2010, after collaborating with Pr S. Lecommandoux since 2003 on the design and study of magnetic polymersomes for theranostic applications (MRI combined with anti-cancer therapy).

Achievements and functions

Dr Olivier Sandre was adjunct professor of Waterloo University in Canada from 2012 to 2015 and received the 2012 Young Researcher award of the Physical Chemistry division of French Chemical Society (SCF) and French Physics Society (SFP) for his researches on self-assembled magnetic polymer composite materials. He was promoted senior CNRS researcher in 2014. From 2014 to 2016, he served as chair of the Sub-Committee 9 on Soft Condensed Matter at the Institut Laue-Langevin. From 2017 to Spring 2020, he chaired the board of the Condensed Matter division of the French Physics Society. In 2019, he was elected chair of the scientific council of the CNRS institute of chemistry (until 2023).

Teaching activities

Dr Olivier Sandre regularly gave lectures at the master and doctoral school level focused on magnetic nanoparticles, on vesicle membrane properties or on neutron scattering in soft matter. In particular, he gave a tutorial webinar available on-line about the neutron scattering techniques to study polymers.

Scientific production

Dr Olivier Sandre is coauthor of 98 peer-reviewed articles (78 in journals, 20 in conference proceedings), 3 book chapters, and he filed 6 patents. All these articles or chapters are freely available in institutional repositories (100% Open Access rate).
