Mathieu Bottier


Lab Members

Mathieu Bottier is a postdoctoral research associate at Washington University since January 2017. His primary lab is the Bayly lab in the Mechanical Engineering Department. He works in the Dutcher lab on a joined NSF grant about the measurement and modelling of waves and oscillations in cilia and flagella. Mathieu records the flagella motion of the unicellular green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, both wild type and mutants, through high-speed video-microscopy. He then analyzes the videos to apply a mathematical model and extract parameters to describe the flagella beating. During Mathieu’s education, he developed an interest for both medicine and engineering. He has a License and a Master’s degree in biomedical engineering from the University of Rouen (France). Mathieu obtained my Ph.D. thesis in engineering sciences from the Paris-Est University (France) in the team of “Biomechanics & respiratory system: a multi-scale approach” (Inserm U955 Team 13, CNRS ERL 7240).
