Jean-Baptiste has 15 years of experience in design and fabrication of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) for biological applications. He obtained a M.Sc. in Microengineering with a specialization in Integrated Circuits Design at the University of Lille in France, and a Ph.D. at the French National Center of Scientific Research (CNRS), where he designed and manufactured original force sensors to sense cell membrane mechanics. Keen on microfabrication techniques, he became Deputy Manager of Photolithography at the Center for Micro-Nanotechnology (CMi) at the EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland. He then joined the EPFL Life Science Faculty as well as the CHUV (University Hospital of Vaud), working on multidisciplinary projects in the context of skin stem-cell therapy.
In February 2018, Jean-Baptiste joined the Lunaphore team as Manufacturing Engineer, responsible for the development of facilities and processes for the in-house manufacturing of Lunaphore’s products.
