Introduction
After an Engineering degree in Biological Engineering at AgroParisTech, I received my PhD in July 2020 at the LCPI Laboratory, ENSAM. My research currently focuses on Engineering Design surrounding the practice of Biomimetics and more specifically the biologists' integration into biomimetic processes.

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Although biomimetic design practice becomes more and more common, some methodological aspects are still under development. More especially, this article aims at dealing with biologist’s role and integration during the design process and its construction. After an introduction of the context and the protocol of our experiment on a case study about t...

Alors que l'innovation par la biomimétique prend son essor au sein de la communauté scientifique et dans le monde industriel, la question de la place des différents acteurs, en particulier celle des biologistes et de leurs rôles, dans ce type de processus reste entière. A travers, la caractérisation des attentes des différents acteurs, cette étude...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The strength of biomimetics comes from its ability to draw from life mechanisms and strategies to design innovative solutions. In spite of recent methodological progresses, more specifically on tools and processes, biomimetics' implementation still faces strong difficulties. Among other things, design teams have a hard time finding and selecting re...
Article
Full-text available
Engineering design, as the science framing the practice of design through the elaboration of tools and processes, is constantly evolving towards new innovative strategies. To thrive in their extremely competitive environment, it appears that both industrial and natural worlds are highly dependent on innovation, optimisation and selection. These com...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In a world where raw materials are becoming scarcer, it appears necessary to adjust our way of developing new products. Indeed, the fundamental question of products’ sustainability, resources’ origin and environmental impact, is more and more important for customers. Moreover, the issue of equitable access to basic products is growing in poor count...
Presentation
Full-text available
L’énergie est au cœur de la transition écologique de cette première moitié du XXIe siècle. Collecter de l’énergie « propre », la stocker massivement pour pallier la variabilité de sa disponibilité et ce sans polluer. La transmettre efficacement pour répondre à la demande, optimiser son utilisation et limiter les pertes, autant d’éléments qui compos...
Article

Full text access : https://www.novatechsetproofs.com/authors/ASME/MD-20-1753.pdf Implementation of biomimetics in practical innovation strategies still faces various impediments. Multidisciplinary communication is one of the most recognized one. Enabling teammates having various cognitive and conceptual frameworks to properly exchange information...
Article
Full-text available
Biomimetics has been a subject of increasing interest but, where it has proven its scientific relevance and innovative potential from a theoretical standpoint, it remains rarely used in practice. Facing this lack of implementation, our work aimed at asking practitioners for their help to better understand the remaining impediments preventing biomim...
Article
Full-text available
Facing current biomimetics impediments, recent studies have supported the integration within biomimetic teams of a new actor having biological knowledge and know-how. This actor is referred to as the "biomimetician" in this article. However, whereas biology is often considered a homogenous whole in the methodological literature targeting biomimetic...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Biomimetics has undergone an increasing development over the last decade. Most of the conducted research relative to its operational practice has focused on the formalization of biomimetic processes and the development of tools adapted to the specificities of biomimetics. Here we adopt a complementary point of view: the analysis of the impact of th...
Article
Full-text available
www.novatechsetproofs.com/authors/ASME/MD-20-1040.pdf Biomimetic practice requires a diverse set of knowledge from both biology, and engineering. Several researchers have been supporting the integration of biologists within biomimetic design teams in order to meet those biological requirements and improve the effectiveness of biomimetic processes....
Thesis
Full-text available
La recherche scientifique sur les méthodologies de conception biomimétique fait aujourd’hui face à la difficulté majeure de concrétiser sa mise en place dans les pratiques d’innovation. Dans ce contexte, et face aux nombreux freins qui en découlent, cette thèse de doctorat soulève la question des métiers associés à la pratique de la biomimétique. P...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
L’objectif de cette recherche est de mettre en place une démarche méthodologique accessible aux industriels afin de leur permettre l’application de la bio-inspiration quelle que soit leur domaine d’expertise. L’étude de cas utilisée pour y parvenir se situe dans un contexte d’exploitation pétrolière offshore.

Question
Like Dr. Torben Lenau who has developed the BioCards to teach (but not only) biomimetics, if you want to share tools you've developed in articles or as part of your teaching process, feel free to do so !!
Question
For engineers?
For designers?
For biologists?
In order to create actual multi-discipline and multi-cultural student teams? Answer international competition such as the biomimicry design challenge?
Question
Feel free to add any type of advice and share your experience on teaching biomimetics.

Investigate biomimetic actors and collaboration
Project
Following the SIG on Bio-Inspired Design at ICED 19, one of the idea that emerged was to start a group to share our questions, good practices or smart examples regarding biomimetics as a teaching subject. Well, here it is.
