Estelle Doineau joined the LOOP4PACK project as a post-doctoral fellow at UMR IATE in November 2021. She took the opportunity to be part of this project, from the synthesis of PHAs to the development of eco-responsible materials in the packaging application, to strengthen her skills and knowledge in this very rich field. Her role will be to implement and characterize the PHAs produced by the project partners and to study the influence of the process parameters linked to the synthesis on the final functional properties of the material.

Estelle Doineau is an engineer specialized in paper, fibers and biomaterials (Grenoble INP-Pagora) and obtained her doctorate from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines d’Alès in December 2020. Her thesis is the result of a collaboration with 3 laboratories (INRAe-BIA in Nantes, LGP2 in Grenoble and IMT Mines Alès-PCH) on the creation of hierarchical interfaces in biocomposites based on natural fibers.
