Johan is a French student visiting the Ethier lab for nine months. His home school in France is the Ecole Normale Supérieure Paris-Saclay where he still needs to do one year to complete his master degree in Mechanical Engineering.
He is working on Liz’s project about the influence of mechanical surroundings on astrocytes. He is building a new bioreactor for cyclic compression and trying to characterize the mechanical behaviour of some hydrogels.
Johan is going to take a gap year at the end of his intership at the Ethier lab to travel all around the world with three friends.
