During her academic studies, Sophie Brenet completed several research internships in various academic laboratories at CEA and UGA. She thus participated in various projects involving electronic noses, organic thermoelectricity, characterisation of materials by atomic force microscopy, experimental oncology and protein characterisation. Her profile also includes an Erasmus experience at the University of Glasgow in Scotland.
In 2015, Sophie Brenet joined the SyMMES laboratory at CEA to complete a PhD thesis on the development of an electronic nose by surface plasmon resonance imaging. Her project focused on the development and optimisation of an instrumental bench for the optical detection of volatile compounds. In collaboration with the start-up Aryballe Technologies, she was involved in technology and know-how transfer, including writing deliverables and training.
She was involved in research and PhD valorisation in companies, under the Recherche, Entreprise et Innovation label. In this context, she took an Intellectual Property awareness course.
In addition, she took part in supervising trainees, teaching activities in higher education, and popularising the subject among primary and secondary school pupils and the general public.
She joined HAUTIER in 2018. As a patent engineer, her multidisciplinary and transversal scientific knowledge allows her to comprehend various technical fields in Physics, Chemistry and Biotechnology.
